I am trying to move a big folder (15gb) from a NTFS external HDD to my laptop running UBUNTU 11.10. In order to be sure that i was copying the correct folder, i double checked the size of the relevant folder first connecting the HDD to a windows7 machine, showing 15gb / 7675 files, then performing the same task after connecting the HDD to my laptop. To my surprise, im the latter case, the size goes up to 16.2gb with 0ver 7800 files.
Could you kindly explain to me the reason for this? Am I missing something or doing something wrong? Is it filesystem related?
