Course 5, Week2, Assignment #1 glove.6B.50D.txt

This is a somewhat low priority question.
I was puzzled by the filesize of the globe.6B.50D.txt as shown on the Coursera File server, where it shows this to be only 47 Bytes, but after downloading it to my local machine, it seems to be 160MB. See attached screenshot. What’s up with this?

Hey @caltech_kerava, you are right, that file is not that small in size. What you see as a 47 Bytes file size is actually a shortcut to the original file.

I believe because of the size of the file, Coursera creates a shortcut file and puts that in your workspace.

In the main workspace, from where your workspace is copied, the file size is 171Mb.
