[Solved] Size of Sync Folder larger than sum of its contents

Recommended Posts

I'm new to BT Sync and have been using it to download files from a remote server. Once downloaded, I can access the server via SFTP and delete the files from the sync folder.

In theory this should keep the footprint of the sync folder on my local machine relatively small, since I move any downloaded files out of the folder. But when I look at the size of my sync folder on the local machine it appears much larger than the sum of the few files left in it. 

For example, it is currently showing 96GB at the top folder level, but it contains only approx. 19GB of files. It's as though the files I've deleted are still there.

Any ideas where my mystery files are?
