I just downloaded and installed XBoot Pro version 1.0 beta 14. The software looks very nice. I dropped 4 images into the XBoot window totaling 3.52GB. And this is not my math. It's XBoots math right on the application. In the "Total Size" textbox it says 3.52GB. However, when I look at the image size on my hard disk its 5,435,136KB. That's almost 2 extra gigabytes of data. What is going on here. How do I get this xboot.iso file down to the proper size. It won't even fit on a standard DVD+R disc.

My system is Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1. Thanks for all the help you can give.

Edit: To any moderators reading this, please move it to XBoot forum if you choose. I didn't realize there was a specific XBoot forum. Thanks.
