I have a Beige G3 Power Macintosh running OS 9.2.2.

Two days ago, I reformatted the hard drive and installed the software. My computer now shows that every file has a minimum file size of 895K Bytes. I then ran the computer off of the OS 9 CD to see if it was a OS problem. The files still showed up as 895K Bytes. I ran Disk First Aid, but that did not help.

I have never seen this happen before.

Thanks

It appears that I am using Mac OS Standard formatting. I suppose that I should be using Mac OS Extended. Is that correct?

Commented:
Yep. That should bring your minimum sizes down to around 4k.

OK...thanks. I reformatted the hard drive with Extended and so far so good. Thanks!
