Why is my Roaming profiles share location size on disk high

IX_LongBow asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-14
I have roaming profiles stored on a windows 2000 server share. Size is about 800MB, but the size on disk is about 1.5GB. My cluster size is default 4k, so I can't fiigure out why I have such a high size on disk. Is there a way to figure out the reason why size on disk is about twice the actual size of the data, even though my cluster size is only 4k?
