    Disk Space Usage

    Understanding why files take more space then their file size

    Due to the nature of how files are stored electronically, most files occupy slightly more disk space than their actual size. For example, a 300 bytes file may occupy 4 KB of actual disk space. This may cause discrepancies between the data you see in the File Manager versus the information you find in the table below. The disk space usage in the table below indicates how much space the directories’ contents use, not how much space the directory itself uses. Directories themselves usually use a negligible amount of disk space unless they contain a large number of files or subdirectories.
