I noticed when a download of an item was complete, that the file size was a fair bit smaller than the listed seed file. Does this mean i've lost anything, or that my file is not lossless?

Thanks for any help. :)

If everything checks out with MD5s etc. It's most likely due to the hard drives using different file systems, what is a fair bit?
