I have the directory in the file system with 2 regular files each  of  which  is
sized as 700M according to 'ls -l'.  But the torrent client and 'du -s' and  'ls
-l's 'total' show that the directory size is 300M.

How can that be?  Are there different file sizes  stored  on  a  ufs1  in  their

ot the least how could I see the 'real' size of each of those files, both  ~150M
actulally, with a system command?

Thank you.
