I don't have exact figures, but for a 20GB filesystem with only 800MB
used "for real", the rescue mount brought usage down to about 15GB, and
then the repair took care of the rest.

Basically just disconnected inodes that were dumped in lost+found, which
correspond to data that our POS system had just created locally for
audit purposes when the machines were turned off (part of our fix is
correcting this practice and maybe adding an fsync() after the audit
files are written).
I'll make it a point to have better answers for these questions during
our next clean up run.
