I recently just deleted my find by content index on my hard drive and reindexed the drive. I have a 6 gig drive with 3.68 gigs remaining. The index content takes up 267 Megs of that hard drive. That means that 2.06 gigs of the Hard Drive is full, and about an eighth of the space is used for the index.

On my superdisk which has about 60 megs of stuff on it, the index is only 300k.

Any ideas if this is how it should be and/or how to fix it?

I can't explain the huge difference in size, but the obvious thing to try is erasing the index on your HD and copying the small file from your SuperDisk.

The index is different for every disk and changes with every file on the disk. If I tried to take the one from my SuperDisk first of all it wouldn't be the right disk so it wouldn't work and second of all if it did work it would be updated and would come to the huge size once again.
