I'm nervous.  In preparation for an OS upgrade, I copied my home 
directory over to another machine.  When I do a 'du', I'm getting 20 
gigs on the copy, 23 gigs on the original.

 From my home directory /home/user I did the following:
  scp -r -C *

'du' issued at shows 20 gig.
'du' issued at /home/user shows 23 gigs.

Directory listings sure seem the same based on a cursory inspection.

Where's my 3 gigs?
