    In an "original course", or "Master Course", the Course Statistics do a wonderful job of reporting the associated content and file information for Totals and File Storage.

    However, when that course is copied the new course does not reflect any of this associated content in the course statistics, which can be very misleading for admins and faculty.

    I know we use file hashing, and data de-duplication to minimize file redundancy in AWS, so perhaps creating a subset in the course stats that identifies "unique" content vs. "referenced" content per course would be applicable?
