Default Total size of all files and folders less than space occupied

Hey I've used up around 6GB on my MotoG(including cache and all files and folders) but the settings>storage tab shows that I've used 8GBs and there's only 5 GB free(12.92 GB usable)
I've used several 3rd party apps to check this. Attached screenshot.
A factory reset did solve the problem but when I copied all files again, the same thing happened. Does anyone else have this problem? Please check.

To be precise, the difference was around 2GB before factory reset, now it's 1.7. Click image for larger version

There are some folders that are not counted in to neither groups for some reason. If you move your files to "native" folders like Music, Movies, etc, then the counters will show the correct size. Not a big deal, but it's disturbing sometimes I agree.

No but the thing is that when I selected all folders and opened properties, using es explorer, the total size shown was 5.5gb as opposed to 7gb that it shows as occupied. There are no hidden folders. So where'd the space go?
