Says 2.6 of 15gb used, but I only have 300 mb in one folder. Anyone know what says 2.6GB used? Thanks! (I'm kinda of new to Google Drive, and while not Apple per se, I have on Imac thanks!)

Please clarify where you are seeing the 2.6 GB number. In Get Info, Disk Utility? Also, does Google Drive have built-in overhead? Like space used for operational things on the drive's end?

Says 2.5 gb used. Now see two folders, does not say size anywhere. I happen to know both folders together are just 100MB.

Hmm. Have you looked at the other places shown in your screen shot, like My Drive, Computers, Storage, even Trash?
