Contentstore far larger than expected

I'm looking to upgrade the local environment that I use for development – I have to install the recent security update – and in preparation for this I'm making a copy of the database and contentstore.  Again, this is a development environment; I have imported maybe 1 or 2 GB of files, and looking around using Share or Explorer I can't see very much content.

Windows reports that the size of the contentstore directory is 135GB.

I know that no one reading this will have specific knowledge of my system about what might cause this, but is there a good general answer?

I'm running 4.1.6 Enterprise, by the way, and it's just a simple local installation.
