borg [common options] info [options] [REPOSITORY_OR_ARCHIVE]

This command displays detailed information about the specified archive or repository.

Please note that the deduplicated sizes of the individual archives do not add up to the deduplicated size of the repository ("all archives"), because the two are meaning different things:

This archive / deduplicated size = amount of data stored ONLY for this archive = unique chunks of this archive. All archives / deduplicated size = amount of data stored in the repo = all chunks in the repository.

Borg archives can only contain a limited amount of file metadata. The size of an archive relative to this limit depends on a number of factors, mainly the number of files, the lengths of paths and other metadata stored for files. This is shown as utilization of maximum supported archive size.

See borg-common(1) for common options of Borg commands.
