I wonder what is happening here and if in fact I am concatenating files properly or am loosing some of them. So, I want to cat all the files (all txt) in a folder (called de) into a single txt file. Here are my two ways:
cat de/* >> de_merged_all du -h de_merged_all 353M de_merged_all
Now if I check the size of the folder de, I get:
du -h de 383M de
So, why these numbers don’t match?
