Why is the ‘Artifacts Size’ larger than the ‘Binaries Size’ in the Storage Summary?

When deleting artifacts from Artifactory, the reference to the file in the file-store is deleted from the DB, and only after a set amount of time, the Garbage Collector will delete all unreferenced binaries from the file-store.  The ‘Binaries Size’ shows the size of all referenced artifacts in Artifactory, while the ‘Artifacts Size’ shows the size of all files in the file-store (including the binaries that you have already deleted which have not yet been removed via Garbage-Collection).
