file size copy from traditional to nss

preparing to move our GroupWise domain to another server
decided to move the software distrib directory ahead of time

old server has traditional volume with compression on
new server hass NSS volume with compression off

old server shows SDD as
size: 598mb
size on disk: 1.34gb
Contains 14,411 files, 706 folders

new server shows SDD as
Size: 598mb
Size on disk: 633mb
Contains 14,411 files, 706 folders

I used NetWare copy from a windows workstation to copy the files

shouldn't the new SDD have the same size as the old SDD 1.34gb "size on
disk" ?

No - the Size on Disk is calculated by windows, and has no understanding
of compression and suballocation. It uses a 64K block size for TFS, and
4K for NSS - so calculates the "size on disk" of 1 1KB file on TFS as
64KB and on NSS as 4KB.
