Is that only a single file system? What's in your message queue that postdrop tries to deliver? Do you have any intermediate actions, like virus scanning, that may be suffering from "mail bomb" attacks?
Not sure of the parent.we stopped postfix via /etc/init.d/postfix stop. but when we start the process it comes up for a while and aafter sometime its status is shown as unused, not sure why? could this be the cause and also tried to stop postdrp fom its directory but getting the following erro message even when checking the status of the service;
"postdrop: warning: mail_queue_enter: create file maildrop/810678.24261: No space left on device".
