Maybe. Probably not. It *is* higher than I've ever seen on my own
systems., but
I'm unsure what action you _could_ take other than copying from one
drive to another,
in hopes that the copying would tend to allocate contiguous space.

Is the drive nearly full? Give us some more information, like the
output of df(1) and hdparm(8),
and anything unusual about the file sizes and growth.
