Attempting to install BT2 again

I just have one question. Why is this happening? I try to install backtrack with compression, so that it should only require 700 mb. I have read the pdf documentation. I have tried several things. I am about to try writing the image to the hard disk using dd, but I shouldn't have to. In my picture, notice that the directory with the mounted partition was empty before beginning the install. Then look. The size gets bigger and bigger and does not stop getting bigger after 700 mb.
