I have a bunch a bunch of files; it's a big bunch, like 10,000+ files (pages). They are bound together using a PHP script.

This results in a brutal difference between the actual size and size on disk. The problem though, is the webhost says their size is bigger than it actually is. It's like 30% bigger when compared to size on disk in my local hard disk.

Is the server faking usage or it's just because it uses a different file system? Mine is NTFS... The server is using Apache/Linux.

Anyway, what would be the best fix for this?

Are you both measuring it in the same way? Is one of you measuring in KiB and the other in KB?
