Can anyone experience difference in file and folder size on a large mixed folder?
I can see on my system
(1) When right click and click on properties it will show one size ( Whole Folder ) Note : 1.62 gb
(2) When right click and click on properties it will show one different size ( Whole items inside the folder selected ) Note : above 6 gb
(3) When copying that folder to another location to give space for my desktop ( Again it will show one different size on the status bar ). Note : above 10 gb
Some maintenances ( System Level Compactness related ) are pending on my system. But this is not related to that. So please have a closer look. Because it is annoying when we try to identify the size to be copied to a new location which has enough space.
on the three attached screenshots, you can find 3 different sizes, they are all related to same folder and actually should show same size.
No problem on files except some large file names. But it is related to something on determining the size on coreOS. Can anyone confirm testing with a large folder for work related to ads etc.

They were all from single folder and it was when my OS drive was full. It was a folder with so much work files and as I have already moved them to my data drives, the problem seems to be resolved. That means when I am checking the moved folder everything ( Means right clicking on the new folder and clicking properties and selecting all files inside and clicking properties show same size and number of files/folders ) So it may be a temperrory fetching problem related to system resources available at that time. ( Slowness or something. ) But I have seen the same problem lot of times where a bulk folder is copied. At that point of time it makes problem because we have to understand the required space to move to a new folder. That is why I pointed out the problem and I now understand it may be a slowness or resources available problem by which it sometimes show an incomplete result when checking a bulky folder's properties. Thanks for the answer and that is why I checked the new folder again. BUT WHAT I POINTED IS A FACT AT SOME POINTS ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE BARE LARGE FILES AND THE SYSTEM IS A BIT SLOW.@HotCakeX

Mixed is the answer for the file size of files and that issue I posted may be due to some slowness causing " Pausing Calculation " as I told. If I see the same issue later I will surely post an update. Meanwhile Allocation Unit Size isn't set or changed to a custom value as I am unaware so much about that settings. @HotCakeX
