How does MS Teams calculate your used storage?

I have a file that is supposed to be 24MB listed in Teams, but there is only 1 (non-deletable) version, and it's much smaller (only 7.5MB).
Also when downloading the file to disk it is also only 7.5MB.
 
Is there a reason for this or an explanation?

@MacuDon Why would be supposed to be 24Mb? If you've edited the file it may have had some old data removed.

Thanks @Steven Collier for the reply. I also checked the previous version and nothing was listed.

If you checking the SharePoint library where the files are stored, it might be worth checking the site recycle bin.  Items in the recycle bin still count against available storage although I'm not whether this counts for deleted versions.
