It may be the files are bieng compressed to save space.

Thanks for your quick responce acolyte.yes my pc is set to commpress but has never commpressed to this degree before,is it safe left in this commpress mode or should i alter this.

It will compress when the disk space is getting low,or compresss files you havent used in a while
it shouldnt do any harm to your pc as the files should still work the same as before.
