    In a nutshell: Sparse file.

    After you read that, try this script to check whether a file is sparse or is not sparse:

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $file = shift @ARGV; my(@status) = stat $file; print "\n"; if ( $status[7] > ($status[12] * 512) ) { print "$file is sparse\n\n"; } else { print "$file does not appear to be sparse\n"; } system("du -hS --apparent-size $file"); system("du -hS $file"); print "\n";
    The apparent-size file will usually be lt than the actual-size. If the apparent-size is gt the actual-size, that might be a sign that something's wrong.
