Inconsistency in reported Library Size
Hey, I've just been messing around sorting out my media library and noticed the library size is at least 7GB smaller (when viewed in playlist manager) than if I check the properties of those folders in Explorer. Using foo_uie_albumlist, the reported size is 857GB vs 864GB in Explorer.. foo_facets reports an even smaller size of 830GB (though i'm not surprised in this case as there are a lot of albums facets doesn't pick up properly due to however it reads tags (some albums are invisible in my facets panel until i re-tag them). Is there any particular reason i might be missing those 7gb's within the album list panel? another tagging issue or something? while the library does consist of other files e.g. cue/txt/cover art etc i highly doubt they would take up 7GBs!

any help shedding light on the matter would be appreciated.

What's the typical size of your cover art and do you store front-, back-, etc. images? And is your music in lossless or lossy format?
