Maybe the previous log included junctions, that's what the PerfectDisk and Logged files greater than Used space, tells me.
Have you tried this
Highlight G:\ in the directory window
Alt-Log, F5 Skip junctions=yes, Branch

Capacity=Available+Used space
So those numbers make sense

Having some compressed files on a windows install is normal, do the following to see them
Showall, Alt-Tag, Attributes, +c

Also check for any sparse files
Showall, Alt-Tag, Attributes, +p

Also it's normal for there to be a number of hardlinks (files that have more than 1 directory entry that points to them) on a windows install, with a lot with one link under c:\Windows\WinSxS.
ZTree reports the link count in Alt-Info, but I don't think its logged.
Some info on how to find them at https://superuser.com/questions/366739/how-can-i-find-hard-links-on-windows
The find tool in the "SFUA utility toolkit" looks like the easiest way to find them all, do a web search to find the latest one, as the link on superuser.com is broken, I don't know what the dependencies of that toolkit are.
