How Can I Clean Up Files That Don't Exist?

I used the following tar command to copy a file hierarchy:

tar cfp - -C /home . | tar xfpv - .

However when I hit user maildirs, many files get copied but I also get a 
lot of errors such as these:

Cannot open: No such file or directory

I use Courier IMAP 4.0.1,1 installed from ports if it makes any 
difference.  As far as I can tell, IMAP is working just fine.  Clients 
connect, get their messages, etc.

Any ideas on why there are so many files that don't exist?  And what is 
a good way to clean up my disk?
