File size discrepancy
on Dec 18, 2013 at 5:26:11 pm

Hi all,

I'm using a Macbook Pro (10.6.8) to transfer SxS cards (via Sony Content Browser) to two G-RAID drives.

I'm transferring directly from card to a primary hard drive, then repeating (directly from card) to a back-up drive.

When i compare the overall size of the folders (using 'Get Info') I see small differences. For example:

Primary drive: 368.1 GB on disk (368,095,842,407 bytes) for 1,215 items

Back-up drive: 368.1 GB on disk (368,095,817,815 bytes) for 1,215 items

Everything seems to playback fine but I wanted to check that this is ok and not something to worry about?

Cheers.

That could simply be a difference in things like Finder info (.DS_Store files) and things like Spotlight and fsevents overhead.

BRU ... because it's the RESTORE that matters!
