Oops, I would of thought that if a file had, say 100,000 bytes, @ 70 percent 
full, there would be 30,000 bytes "empty" or dead. Are you suggesting the there 
would be 70,000 bytes of data and 42,000 bytes of dead space?

Whoops Martin, I think you've made the classic percentages mistake here ...

The file is 30/70, or 42% dead space at least. A file with the default
80% split is at least 25% dead space.
