What Is An Inode

An Inode is the internal structure that describes an individual file. An inode contains file size and update information, as well as the addresses of data blocks, or in the case of large files, indirect blocks that, in turn, point to data blocks.

One inode is required for each file.  This includes any files in a hosting account, such as e-mail messages that are stored on the server.
