I'm having a strange problem with the size of some files after I copy them. Below you will find the properties windows for 2 different files in 2 different places. I have done the following:
1. Copy the file using PowerShell (overwrites the old copy)
2. Deleted the old copy on drive E and then copy the file using PowerShell (creates a new file)
3. Copy the file using PowerDesk 6 (overwrites the old copy)
4. Deleted the old copy on drive E and then copy the file using PowerDesk 6
All four result in the same thing happening: The new copied file to the external hard drive (drive E) is larger in physical size than the original.
I also checked the file size using PowerDesk 6 on the other external hard drive (drive F) and it is an EXACT DUPLICATE of the oringal.
Drive E is attaced to my Linksys router and Drive F is connected directly to my desktop. Both drives are the exact same make and model (Seagate).
Does this possibley have something to do with the fact that drive E is a network drive?
Seems like I am burning up disk space on drive E.
