How are you measuring that?  If you use "du" on individual directory
hierarchies, it will always report the full size of all the files
contained therein.  It is only when you du the parent directory of the
hierarchies that du will elide any files that were mentioned in prior
dirs.  For instance:

% cp -al one two
% du one two
9.6M    one
9.6M    two
% du .
9.6M    ./one
0       ./two
