@FileSize - How is this possible?

#1
As usual a quick screen shot:
Code:
[Z:\]echo %@Comma[%@Eval[%@FileSize[C:\,b,a]-%@FileSize[C:\,b]]]
-4,294,936,837
The question should be obvious: How can the allocated size be less than the file size? What am I missing?

Beg to differ, Rex. Behold:
Code:
[C:\]echo %@Comma[%@FIleSize[C:\,b,a]]
5,011,992,576

[C:\]echo %@Comma[%@FIleSize[C:\*,b,a]]
5,011,992,576

[C:\]echo %@Comma[%@FIleSize[C:\,b]]
9,306,929,413

[C:\]echo %@Comma[%@FIleSize[C:\*,b]]
9,306,929,413
Need I say more?

If it makes any difference I am running TCC 16.03.55 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601].

You're not providing a file name, you're entering a directory name (which will return "-1" because it's not a file).
The '*' seems to be implied.
Code:
v:\> echo %@Comma[%@Eval[%@FileSize[C:\*,b,a]-%@FileSize[C:\*,b]]]
8,158

v:\> echo %@Comma[%@Eval[%@FileSize[C:\,b,a]-%@FileSize[C:\,b]]]
8,158

Here it be:
Code:

Note again that the allocated size is less than the size.

That is the answer, Rex. The RAM disk software I am using evidently compresses its on-disk image(s). Look at the RAMDisk.img files at the bottom of the below (I can't highlight them in a code block).
Code:
Volume in drive C is Everything  Serial number is 420a:1d5b
Directory of  C:\*
