I have an xfs filesystem that has some free space. Can I shrink it? I know of xfs_growfs. And there is resize2fs and resize_reiserfs.
Side question: is xfs not a good filesystem choice for bulk longterm file storage?
You can make a backup, and then create a new smaller file system and restore.
XFS cannot be shrunk (ref).
