bkf files:restored folder's size differs from size of bkf file

Q: bkf files:restored folder's size differs from size of bkf file

Thank you for taking the time to read my query.
I just restored a bkf file and the restored folder is smaller than the original bkf file. I need to delete the bkf file which is 12 GB but don't want to until I am sure all the files were restored.
I would like to figure out which files were not restored.
Is there any way to figure out which files are missing. After I restored the files, the report says that hardlinks could not be transferred but does not the size of them. The bkf file size is 33,754,314 bytes larger than the restored file,but the bkf file "size on disk"is 19, 099,648 bytes smaller than the restored folder!!!
When I left click on the bkf file and select properties it does not tell me how many files are in the bkf file only the bytes.

Is there any freeware/program that will tell me the number of files in the bkf properties dialogue box? Or even better let me look at the size and number of files in the three main folders I backed up.? I can not access/explore the bkf file only restore it. That would solve my problem. My backup tree is C:sharedhardlinkdata>beth>documents and settings>beth> and then 3 folders underneath
Thank you

Preferred Solution: bkf files:restored folder's size differs from size of bkf file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I installed Windows 8.1 on a different hard disk, and am setting my most preferred settings on this new installation. According to the attached picture, I noticed that I was able to add this bottom grey bar that states the total size of the files in this folder only (kinda like how it was with XP), and completely forgot how to add this feature to File Explorer.

Do you remember how I did this?

A:Show The Total Files' Size In A Folder In File Explorer

I just read my post and it actually sounds a little confusing. What I meant to say is that I've been using Windows 8.1 and have managed to add that bottom part to File Explorer in Windows 8.1. I installed a fresh version of this same Windows 8.1 on a different computer, and am trying to remember/research how I was able to add that grey bar down there. Have you managed to come across anything like this anyone? Does it ring a bell?

You won't get it back. I am using X86 with 4 GB ram. My usuable is 3.0 GB. The reason that you had more with X64 is that it can use more of your ram. If you would have in stalled 6 GB, you would have had about 5. 3 GB usuable. With X86 4 GB is all it can take and usable is less.

My 32GB Windows 10 Home PC (recently upgraded from 8.1) is low on disk space. I deleted Windows.old and I have hibernation disabled. Apart from a few browsers, very little else is installed, yet I only have 11.7GB left?

One reason may be the size of the Windows folder:
Size 14.7GB
Size on Disk 9.91GB

From my calculations, Windows appears to be using the higher figure in determining available disk space.

Why is 'Size' so much greater than 'Size on Disk', can I do anything about it? I have a similar 8.1 machine, it does not have this disparity (12.4GB and 12.3GB).

What would be a normal 'Size' for a Windows folder on Windows 10 Home PC very recently upgraded from 8.1 i.e. with few, if any Windows live updates run ?

A:Windows Folder Size greater than Size on Disk

I imagine its because windows compresses some system files currently it may be using 9gb but with all files uncompressed you may be looking at 14 which is why it uses the higher value

I went to SSDs on all of my computers some time back, but I still use WD RE4s and 2.5 inch WD Black HDDs for a variety of backup tasks and for storage in which the data will not be accessed for a period longer than is ideal to use a non-powered SSD for. On my Macs I am using El Capitan with OS X Journeled, GUID map, and FileVault 2 encryption. On my SP3 and desktop I am using NTFS with Win 10 64-bit Pro with BitLocker enabled on both machines. The OS and third party programs are currently up to date.

I've generally used ExFAT and the GPT partition map because it allows me to use it on all of my computers, and I have always used the default cluster size. However, I do not think the default size was the best decision for me because the size on disk is over TWICE the actual size.

If I am correct, the default Win 10 cluster size is 4k, and that going BELOW that is useful for the drives I have many smaller files on. Is this correct? Additionally, the smaller cluster size I go, the slower the drive will write, correct? Also, if so, how low do you advise going? I am still torn between reformatting outright or trying one of the programs that allows changes to a currently in-use drive. Any advice? Thanks!

A:Hard drive cluster size issues? Size on HDD over twice the actual size

For the a sector size of 4k to double your disk utilization you'd have to have a really tiny average file size. From your numbers shown the average size if I calculate it correct is 132kb (unless you have 1 massive file and 17,711 tiny ones) so a 4k size will make no difference.

You could check with TreeSize Free - it will tell you if you right click on the status bar and select it to be displayed.

EDIT - having checked the default for ExFat is 128k for drives over 32GB (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/140365) and when I tried to format an external USB drive that is what it picked. According to macbook - Reformat exFat with specific Device Block Size and Cluster Size - Ask Different OSX picks 128k also.

So if you had 128k as your cluster size minimum disk utilization would be 17,772 files * 128k = 2.17GB. So if all your files were just over this (say 132k which looks like your current average size) you would be using 4.44GB add a couple of big files and it could easily be 6GB.

I would check your average file sizes and also your current cluster size (you can use chkdsk as described in the AskDifferent link above).

The default is 4k for NTFS and I have always formatted ExFat as 4k also. Depending on your current setting reformatting 4k looks like a good idea.

As for how - copying the data elsewhere, formatting and then copying it back has to be the easiest, safest and most likely fastest way. You'll also get the disk defragmented automatical... Read more

I am running out of space on my system drive (120GB SSD with < 6GB remaining). It happened in only 12 months. I'd like to know where all that space went, which files are using it. So I'm looking for a way to rank files by size regardless of their folder location, largest-to-smallest, ideally without a full scan of the disk if there are internal indexes that have this info.

After doing a lot of file management (backups, deletion of unnecessary files, defrag, etc) I was able to recover a substantial amount of space. When opening up Computer, I noticed that the size was only registering about 70GB free (out of 500). Knowing this couldn't be the case (I had found the directory my screen recorder saves to, apparently it records lossless avi at 1gb/minute) I did the usual right click on all the folders in root:\ and the size count was only 162GB, with hidden and system folders viewable. I found TweakNow PowerPack 10, which I had used for its Disk Usage Analyzer. That came up with only 94GB used.

After those installs, the disk size jumped to 94GB free.

I have MS Access 2010 & have a database that has been about 45 MB in size for 2 years. About a month ago I noticed it now is 67 MB. I compact & repair every time I save it which is twice a month. I've gone back & did a compact & repair on the 67 MB file but it does not change.

I must have looked at & changed something without realizing it. The actual number of records appears to be correct. How can examine and/or compare tables or other internals between the two sizes? I've seen a program called AccdbMerge come up on a few Google hits & was wondering if anyone ever used it?

And & all suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Access file size increased in size by 50%

The only reason I've seen for a database to get very large is when there is a picture (JPG file) used in a form. Apparently Access does not do a very good job with storing this type of data. Perhaps your database has an image stored as a data item in a table (or some other place.) Other than that...no idea why you should see such a large size.

Alternately, you can create a new empty database and then copy each object from your current database to the new one, one at a time, and check the size of the new database after each copy. That will at least identify which object is causing the problem.

I have file copy set to never delete any files. As a result, the file copy folder has grown quite large. I need to fix this. If I change the parameter to say delete files older than 3-months old, will I maintain a copy of all files including those that did
not change in the last three months?
I am assuming, initially, file copy makes a copy of all files and then periodically updates files that change. But if a file doesn't change very often do I run the risk of having the initial copy deleted if I set the delete time from to something other than
"never delete anything"?
What is the proper procedure for re-setting  file copy to start with a delete time frame? I read elsewhere for Windows 10 that simply deleting the file copy folder is not enough.
Thanks in advance.

I had 125 GB SSD HD as my C drive. I put in a 250GB SS HD and restored my windows from an image saved on an external drive. 
when i go to my computer, it showing the capacity  of the new 250 GB drive as the 125 GB HD.  How do i get the drive size to show up correctly

A:Put in new HD, restored windows, HD size not showing correctly.

The best option would have been to Clone the old drive  to the new drive using MiniTool Partition Wizard { Free}.
Then it would of expanded it to suit the new drive size .
If its working ok with the new drive  , the you could still use MiniTool and Extend that partiton to use the remainder of the 250G SSD.
I have never done it the way you have , but give it a try as minitool has many options.
EG: you could just have the reminder space { Unallocated } as a D:\ Drive , or just merge the 2 Partitions to have a Single C:\ Drive.

Looking to get some help with possible malware. I am running server 2008 R2 with exchange 2010. This is for personal domain and a home bisness domain.

A:file size vs size on disk

Disks are laid out at a base level in sectors, and then in clusters which are groups of sectors.
For example, on a 32GB partition (Fat32) the cluster size is 32000 bytes. On a NTFS system, the standard size is 4K.

Files can only be on a cluster boundary. Therefore, in this example, a file that is 16,000 bytes (file size) will be 32,768 bytes (on disk). And a 40,000 byte file (file size) will be 65,536 bytes (on disk).
Or, on a NTFS system, a 5,000 byte file will take 2 clusters, or 8,192 bytes (on disk)

Do Start > Run > Command and at the prompt enter

After it runs, the "xxxx bytes in each allocation unit" is the cluster size.

When I compress a password protected Word or Excel file by adding to a zip or archive folder, the file size is much greater than when I add a non protected file. For example, if I compress a 5Mb Excel file, the archive (zip) file is a little less than 5Mb, with an 8% compression ratio. If I compress the same file without the password protection, the archive file is about 1Mb with an 82% compression ratio.

I guess I can somewhat understand this. The act of compressing the file is a manner of changing it. But then why do I get some minimal (8%) compression at all?

I have tried this with combinations of WinXP, Win7, Office 2003, and Office 2010, and it seems the low compression (large file size) with the password protected file is specific to systems running Office 2010. The compression ratio of the file is about 86%-88% with Office 2003, regardless of password protection. Is this part of the "enhanced security" of Office 2010? Is there a workaround for this, or is it an inescapable result of compressing a password protected file when using Office 2010?

A:File size of zipped password protected files larger than expected

If you had a simple text file filled with the word TEST over and over - then that would be highly compressible since the compression app just needs to take note of the word (and any spaces) & then record how many times the word (and any spaces) should appear in the decompressed document.

My theory for your findings with spreadsheets is:
An Excel spreadsheet must have lots of repeated patterns that can be highly compressed. When you encrypt that spreadsheet, you scramble some of those repeated patterns - thus less compressibility.

To test this theory, I saved a spreadsheet (Office 2010) and opened it with a HEX editor. Just as I thought, there are lots of repeated patterns in that spreadsheet file. Then I made a copy of that spreadsheet and password protected the entire workbook. The HEX editor showed fewer repeated patterns for the encrypted file... but I cannot put a percentage on it. If I had filled the test spreadsheet with a lot more data/labels/charts/text, then I suspect that the difference in repeated patterns (and thus compressibility) would have been greater. My hope would be that the compression app would not be able to detect a pattern in the part of the encrypted spreadsheet file that represented the secured contents.

I don't feel like installing Office 2003 to try and ferret out why you still saw high compression rates on protected files... but it seems that the protection schemes differ between Office 2003 and Office 2010.

All of the above is just conjec... Read more

For Windows 2000/2003

I know that I will eventually figure this out using some spectacular (to me) FOR command but I have a feeling this would be so easy for a seasoned batch file writer to just pound out in a few secs/mins.

Ultimately I would like to have a batch file that searches through a directory and all subdirs to find all files that are 0 (zero) KB in size and then copies the files to a temp location keeping the directory structure intact.
If copying them is not possible while keeping the dir structure intact, a report listing what filenames are in what directory would be okay.

Appreciate any assistance!

This is actually really ugly to do in pure vanilla command script.

The listing part you can get in 2 seconds anywhere anytime by using:

zerofiles.txt will contain full list of zero byte files.

The batch script was harder - only because it's hard to do string replacement without better string manipulation programs like sed etc. Also it requires the delayed variable expansion support to be enabled (start cmd /V:ON) or follow cmd /? for instructions on turning it on permanently.

Then I noticed this:

System image size reported by Windows Backup info is clearly larger than the size reported in the backup folder properties.

A:"Windows Backup size" not reflecting actual backup file size

Windows backups makes a system image and a backup of the user folder of the user account by default.

So, that extra data is likely from your user folder.

Also be default windows backup will save multiple copies of your user folder on each backup, not just file changes.

Which also I think would explain this.

Not sure if this is the right part of forum for this question! or if im missing an obvious answer....

As im having a clearout and tidying up storage folders prior to new back ups - is there a way in Win Explorer or a third party utility to see total size of a folder so when i look at a list of HDD contents i can see which is using up most disk space? each folder may have sub folders as well as files, but apart from right click to Properties i would like a quick quick way of viewing folder size. or even sorting by size rather than folder name. The Size column after Date Modified and then Type isnt wont show a total size. Surely theres a way of Windows or a utility that can show the total size of a folder??

I can then quickly go to a folder which has a large content and see if i can delete some of its contents. Folders like "Photos" is obviously going to be large, but others arent!

Also as i still get confused about the way WIN Backup works im seriously considering Acronis so as to have incremental backups.

How do I return these script files to normal. My folder was stored on an HP Pavilion Laptop using Windows 7.
Thanks to any helpers on this forum who can assist me.....Carlyle

150% size zoom in corrupts Chrome and Adobe Reader - Windows Forum - Computer Support Forums
I have my Windows set to 150% zoom (otherwise it becomes hard to aim at the little buttons in order to click them) It's really nice to have the buttons really big in the list of options that come up when I press the Windows button on the left of Alt button.

But the problem is that it blows up Chrome and Adobe Reader so that it almost becomes unuseable.

Firefox and Internet Explorer is ok. Foxit Reader is ok.

Also, time to time the Chrome appears ok when I log in (not sure about Adobe Reader) but then when I sign out and log in again the overblownness appears again.

A:150% size zoom in makes Chrome and Adobe Reader overblown size

My experience is that the 150% only really works if you are using a high resolution, say 1920x1080.

If your native resolution is much lower than that you are going to get bleed over ... text running outside of the buttons they are meant to label... stuff like that.

Have you tried just using large icons instead of blowing up all text and buttons?

I have Win XP SP2, all updated, Word 2002, SP3.

Choosing say A4 for page setup, setting it to 100% and viewing as Print layout, at 100% used to give a screen size page which was actually equal to A4 ie 21cm x 29.7cm.

For some time now, the screen size is now larger than that - the ruler at the top and bottom shows the marking as being 21cm x 29.7cm, but the cm units on the ruler are marked off at larger than cm units, consequently the screen size page is larger than actual.

This is annoying as it is not an accurate representation of the page layout for things on the page relative to each other.

Any ideas what has caused this and how to fix?

Hello Friends,
                      We have DELL R730 servers running windows 2012 R2 and we are using microsoft windows backup option to backup our servers everyday. I used to check backup of our servers everyday and I've noticed that the wbadmin shows backup successful and data transferred 502 GB whereas the actual file location has 700 gb of data with 4 hard disk image file. I am having this issue for long time and whenever I see this, I delete my backup files, run backup manually and reconfigure backup schedule. This function is wokrking fine for next 3 or 4 days (means wbadmin and backup files are as same size) and again I am getting the same issue. Backup files are huge compared to the one showing in wbadmin (More 200gb).
What cause this to be happened all the time ? How can I stop windows occupying huge space ? Actually if the space in wbadmin and original location are same, I dont have any issue. I suspect the backup functionality on my servers. Please advise

Hello there, and thank you for viewing my thread!

After formatting my PC, I have made a fresh back up of all of my data onto my external hard drive (as you do). The problem I have, is that the external hard drive is showing as pretty much full, but there's nowhere near that much data on it!

I did a little bit of digging, and noticed that when I right click a folder on the external hard drive and go to 'Properties' that the size of the file shows as one value and the size on disk value is significantly larger in most cases.

In some cases, both values do not reflect the actual size of the file on my desktop.

The ExHD is in ExFat format, and I'm assuming it's something to do with the way it's formatted, I just don't know how to fix it. I've tried it a couple of different ways, with different 'Allocation Unit Size's, but for how long it takes to complete the back-up's each time I'd rather just ask for help and find out where I'm going wrong.

If anyone could help me sort this out I'd really appreciate it.

I edit a lot of home movies of my daughter, some video files are as large as 10GB so I cannot use the 4GB file size maximum given by NTFS.

Thank you so much!

Hello, I want what's inside the external hard drive, to look the same no matter the pc it's plugged into.
So, I found how to change Folder Icons permanently from another thread,..
Now, what remains is changing the folder view, or else the icons won't be clear, so is that even possible?
PS. I know it's kinda OCD ..

A:External Hard Drive, Permanent Folder View (Folder Icon Size)

I did some research , and found that it was possible on windows xp via the "desktop.ini" through "FolderType=string" (eg: pictures, videos), but it seems it's impossible on windows 7.
The reason is that the " Show Common Tasks" in Folder options has been removed from windows 7.

Hello Friends,

Over the past few days I have noticed that my Folder Properties (Right Click > Properties) doesn't show the 'folder size' or the 'number of files/folders' the folder contains.

In the General Tab of the Folder Properties the following is displayed:

Size : 0 bytes
Size on disk : 0 bytes
Contains: 0 Files, 0 Folders

Everything else works fine. This problem is specific to the folders. In case of files all details are shown as usual.
In fact when I bring my mouse over the folders the tool tips DO show the folder size and also names of files they contain.

Also this is not because of the folder being empty or anything as this problem is for ALL folders invariably including the Windows folder.
I have tried using Command Prompt. The 'dir' command can list the folder size with no problems.
I also have all requisite permissions as I am the admin. Also UAC etc. is in place.

Additional Details: I have no problems moving folders, copy pasting etc. whatsoever and the computer is working totally fine. Only this problem stumps me.

Please help.

Hackers Target Microsoft JPEG Hole

Tue Sep 28,10:00 AM ET
Paul Roberts, IDG News Service

Malicious hackers are seeding Internet news groups that traffic in pornography with JPEG images that take advantage of a recently disclosed security hole in Microsoft's software, according to warnings from antivirus software companies and Internet security groups.

The reports are the first evidence of public attacks using the critical flaw, which Microsoft identified and patched on September 14. Users who unwittingly download the poison images could have remote control software installed on their computers that gives remote attackers total control over the machine, experts warn.
The images were posted in a variety of Internet news groups where visitors post and share pornographic images or "binaries." The altered JPEG images were posted to groups such as "alt.binaries.erotica.breasts" on Monday by someone using the e-mail address "[email protected]," according to information published on the online security discussion group Bugtraq and on Easynews.com, a Web portal for Usenet, the global network of news servers.

Corrupt Images

The corrupted JPEG images are indistinguishable from other images posted in the group, but contain a slightly modified version of recently released exploit code for the JPEG vulnerability called the "JPEG of Death" exploit, which appeared over the weekend, according to Johannes Ullrich, chief technology of...

Hi All,

I have a weird situation I don't understand and am concerned it may due to an infection and would like some advice.

The last two backups I performed using Acronis True Image WD edition are around twice the size as before and are around twice the size the program says the image will be when setting up the backup.

This started in Feb of this year. I have also noticed weird behavior of my wireless keyboard and mouse- sometimes not responding immediately. I have also been having intermittent freezing of the computer when left unattended.

I use Norton Internet Security and run Malwarebytes scan periodically but nothing has come up as a threat.

Any ideas how to figure out what the extra space in the backups is from and should I be concerned?

Running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Acronis True Image WD edition from 2009.
