Default NTFS Free Space

Not sure why but I have created a backup using Unstoppable Copy of my users folder. If you select the folders and hit properties it says there are 4 GB of files, if you click properties in the white space ( the whole users folder ) it says there are 16 GB. There are no other files besides those folders and this has happened several times. Another was when I was transferring files that I killed prematurely. The files were 4 GB combined, and even though the folder is almost empty it is still taking up 4 GB of space. There is also one file that CANNOT be deleted in there I have tried everything short of a reformat. Why do filesystems do this, and where can I go to read up on these issues? It is frequently happening. The media itself is in good condition, so I know its filesystem related. Thank you
