Hello,

Yes, as mentioned, this notification stems from your disk inode (number of files) usage. There's a command referenced on the following thread you can use to scan a directory to see what's using up your inodes:

Inode Usage Stats

Note in this case you would browse to "/" instead of "/home".

Thank you.

Ok and clean up how exactly? I'm not seeing a lot of usage on / partition..
Is the command referenced in the thread linked in my earlier response helpful? It should help you to determine where the inode usage is coming from.

Thank you.
