    Inaccurate file sizes??

    So I’m trying to burn a Dual Layer Blu-ray using Toast 17. The disc is a blank 50GB disc, and according to Toast it’s maximum occupancy is 46.66 GB. But here’s my problem: I fill out that much space and create a disc image of it (which takes literally a full day) only to find the resulting disc image file is now 51.9 GB and won’t fit on the disc. Seems like simple math to solve, but here’s the catch: when I start deleting files from the Toast display the file size changes, eventually going UP despite my removing videos. Why is Toast presenting inaccurate file information, and how do I fix it? I just need concrete, true numbers so I know what I can fit. I really don’t feel like burning out my computer letting it encode overnight only to have Toast give me this problem. Thanks in advance.

    Why does my 7.6GB video turn into 9.5GB?

    Which makes sense to me, but I don’t get why Toast says the space used is one size but then the disc image it creates turns out to be another (larger) size. I had a project that was set to take around 45 GB according to Toast, but when I actually made the disc image it ended up being 52 GB (too large to burn to a BD DL disc).

    Why does my 7.6GB video turn into 9.5GB?

    I’m having the same problem but with Blu-ray. It’s maddening, and very confusing, because I have no way of accurately estimating how much content needs to be removed in order to produce a disc image that will fit on a BD DL. I saw elsewhere that going into the settings and changing ‘re-encode’ to ‘never’ can solve the misleading size estimate issue, but not re-encoding also means fitting a LOT less content onto the disc. Anyone with constructive input / solutions would be most appreciated.
