Actual File Size differs big time to allocated size
« on: February 20, 2018, 07:03:47 pm »
I have a LinkStation 200 Series NAS with two 1Tb drives mirrorred. It is mapped  onto our peer to peer network for all Windows 10 PC's to access. When accessing through Windows Explorer, the allocated size is 1000% more than the actual file size -  ie.  1Mb file is allocated 100Mb .   Nas Navigator shows the drive 65% of the total 919MB available.
When trying to backup the NAS to an external usb 2Tb Drive, get an error out of space.  Any ideas?  Thx
