al3xand3r Posted February 6, 2007 Report Share Posted February 6, 2007 I am working on some very small images for a custom WPS (while playing screen) for Rockbox on my iriver. Anyway, the images have to be in bitmap format. Out of curiosity, I right-clicked on the folders to see "Properties" and saw the following: Size: 109KB Size on Disk: 780KB Contains: 195 files, 15 folders I right-clicked on another folder containing JPEG images, and the difference was very small, a fraction of the total, whereas with the bitmap-only folders the difference is 7 times or more. Why is there such a huge discrepancy between size and size on disk with bitmap files? Just something I'd like to understand. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
