PF replication, file size is difference

I have replicated the ENTIRE PF to another server but the file size is different than the original PF .edb.  The original file is larger in size.  Is there a rational explanation for this or I did something wrong?

Your original database was fragmented, an online defragmentation was performed when you migrated the data. More than likely everything is fine if you received no errors.

Whether you have created new DB and then replicated from old DB?

The old DB might have whitespaces, that include in the DB size.

to check whether the replication completed or not, i would suggest follow the below steps.

You need to export all the public folders (source& destination) with size an number of items into excel sheet and verify whether source and destination folders have same size and also number of public folder items.
