Why does vSAN free capacity differ so much from VSA

Hi VMWare Community,

Would like to know the reason why vSAN and VSA free capacity differ so much.

Below is a picture as an example of my claimed. From what I can see VSA storage shows a free space of appx 5.6Tb worth of free space whereas vSAN capacity has a free space of appx. 17.6Tb.

Wonder if there is any problem with the configuration ?

Appreciate the clarification.

The VSA only shows useable capacity.

Alternatively vSAN shows RAW capacity.
