    Hey all!
    so here's the thing:
    i just wanted to transfer some photos that i took with my digital camera to my HD.
    i got a pretty big SD card on my camera- 64Gb. It was half-full (~30GB).
    after i transfered the files to my PC, the total amount of data was read as 160GB, although each file counted individually is still it's original size. The photos as bulk are being read as 160GB???? HUH?? it's like that with each kind of software, and it stays that way now when i try to transfer them from one HD to another.


    what can i do to repair it?
