Site collection storage management

  Asked By: Ravi    Date: Oct 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1254

I'm looking at a large site which has quotas enabled. While reviewing the
storage management option within the Site Settings page, I'm seeing some
contradictory informaiton. The storage management page shows a library as
having over 12GB of content stored but if I go to the library in explorer view,
select all of the folders and get properties, it only comes back with 615MB.
Any idea why this may be occuring? Is there a way to get an accurate view of
the amount of data being held?
