Thank you for the quick response. I am a bit confused, my Canon 5D mk2 FF was a 23-24 mg camera and the files were about 27mg on Bridge, so why would a 16mg file show up as 32mg. I didn't make any changes to Bridge.

'mg' is not a valid specification.

The 5D mk2 has a 22.3MP sensor: megapixels, MP

The size of a raw file is 27MB: megabytes, MB (I don't know what the file size is, so I am using the number you provided).

As mentioned before, megapixels and megabytes are two completely different things; there is no equivalency here. Also, cameras with the same sensor size and pixel density and thus pixels can have different file sizes due to different bit depths and/or how the data are written to the file.
