XDCAM disc capacity

Single layer XDCAM discs can contain 23Gb, but when I transfer full recorded disc (HD 35mb/s) in a folder onto computer, that folder show only 18-19 Gb of mxf files. I know that 500MB is reserved for project files, audio etc. but where is the remaining cca 2Gb?

Proxy files. When you copy a clip over a low resolution MPEG4 thumbnail clip is also created.

Then I think there is also some space reserved for error correction stuff. Others may know more detail.

500Mb is reserved for user data and files such as EDL's etc, plus as Simon says Proxies etc.
