Used disc space is bigger than size of all files.
I can copy these to a new drive and format or defrag this one, mostly I'm curious what's going on.

In the screenshot I see that these files are allocated for two or three the size (estimated) as the actual file.

G: Original location

Size: 71.7 MB (75,257,668 bytes)
Size on disk:264 MB (276,824,064 bytes)
Contains: 228 Files, 5 Folders

E: Copied location

Size: 71.7 MB (75,257,668 bytes)
Size on disk:72.2 MB (75,718,656 bytes)
Contains: 228 Files, 5 Folders

I understand the allocated space is always larger than the actual combined total but in this case it's more than 3x larger than the actual data. I can re-format the drive or copy the files to anther drive.
