Stupid beginner question: Are the offered two Options (a) "copy multiply claimed blocks" (b) "delete inodes" useful in case multiple hardlinks point to same blocks? Isnt it ok in that case, that blocks are multiply claimed?

Multiply claimed blocks means they are claimed by multiple different inodes, and is unrelated to hard links.
