The difference between HITS and FILES is HITS is the total number of HTTP requests that the server received during the reporting period. Any request made to the server is considered a hit. Whereas FILES is the number of hits that actually resulted in something being sent back to the user, such as an HTML page or image. Total Files and the 200 - OK totals should be the same. If you add up the totals in the Hits by Response Code section, it should be the same as the Total Hits.
