How can I derive volume from zonal statistics?

Hello all,

I have several DTMs for which i would like to calculate the change in volume over time. For this I have used the 'CutFill' tool which has generated useful per pixel (2x2m) results in the attribute table. However there is over 13,000 pixels which is far too much data to manage, so I have used a fishnet and then zonal statistics as a table to attempt to calculate volume change per zone. However this hasn't produced a volume as i expected , i only have SUM and MEAN, which I'm unsure of the meaning of?

Is there another way maybe using the attribute table of the 'CutFill' or zonal statistics to condense the data to a more manageable size?  

Hope this makes sense.
