Um, you _do_ have the uni project backed up don't you?  If you're going to
be investigating a filesystem further, this would be a very good idea.
There is always the risk that a filesystem utility could damage data on
the filesystem (though they shouldn't...).  What type of filesystem is
this?  There have been reports of irretrievable corruption on reiserfs in
the past and many experienced admins just won't use it.
