10.6: Compress files with HFS+ compression
Authored by: kyngchaos on Sep 17, '09 08:39:59AM

Ugh, so it looks like the file size reported in the Finder is the uncompressed size. Aside from the whole KB vs. KiB change, this just creates confusion. When I see the file size in the Finder, I expect it to mean how much space it takes up on the disk (the compressed size).

When copying or reading a file, where it's uncompressed automatically to be presented as if it was the uncompressed data on the disk, sure I need to see the uncompressed size.
