Project manager sequences are very large

Hopefuly there's a very simple explanation for this because it seems something we as editors need to do all the time, but I have never had a very good experience with the project manager.  

 

I have a job with 1.5 Tb of footage, plus transcodes that I'd like to media mangage to the cloud.  To select just the :30 multicam sequence, project manager says will require over 200gb!  Even if I try to transcode to pro res LT (with 24, 12 or 2 frame handles),  it's still over 130 gb.  Can I not copy just the sequence with handles (apparently not becuase that's what the collect and transcode w/ handles option is for)?  But isn't there at least a way to take a :30 sequence and keep it under a reasonable file size--say 30gb?  Why would a :30 sequence with no handles still require 130GB of space? What is it looking at??  FYI, I've included a couple screen grabs of my project manager settings to show what I'm doing.

 

Thanks!

Done.  Do I need to update my post?
