Most of the time, the values for ‘Size’ and ‘Size on disk’ will be very close to matching when checking a folder or file’s size, but what if there is a huge discrepancy between the two? Today’s SuperUser Q&A post looks at the answer to this confusing ‘problem’.

If you need access to the 50.000 files permanently a good solution would be to create a virtual hdd in a file, but with much smaller block size than the original drive. So you save space and the access to the virtual drive is faster too.
