Where is this "Other" storage use coming from?



Background: I recently did some maintenance on my array, mostly deleting some orphaned Recycle Bin files/directories that had been left in the PoolPart folders, even if they weren't normally visible if you opened the Recycle Bin.

After I did that, though, I noticed an oddity. My drives in the array appear to have suddenly had growth in the Other category. This drive has the biggest:


It's not explainable by whatever else is stored on the drive, this is the Windirstat report:


I know the file sizes are, on the scale of my array, fairly small - but I'd still like to know if this is something I should worry about.
