There is a known cosmetic issue in Retrospect 4.0 involving this very
problem. It occurs when you try to restore or duplicate to an HFS+ volume.
This was fixed in 4.1 and later.

If you're still experiencing this type of problem in one of these later
versions, please call us directly so we can get some more information from
you and try to find an explanation.

A very informative technical note on the way Retrospect calculates file
sizes and its relation to allocation block size (which is at the core of the
difference between HFS and HFS+) is on our website at
