    Look at the properties of a folder on my system :mad:
    What exactly is the difference between 'Size' & 'Size on Disk'?

    size => size of bytes on disk
    size on disk => clusters consumed by the file ie the cluster allocation.

    It means the difference between your 'size' ans 'size on disk' is the wasted space of ur disk .
    google for clustors/inodes and will give u better result.
