Estimated Time Remaining - meaning

What does "estimated time remaining" mean when running the Time Tracking report on an agile sprint? for example the total original time estimated was 2630 min (43.8hrs) and the "estimated time remaining" is 470 min (7.8hrs)...does this mean that the team over estimated by 8 hrs? How should this value be interpreted?

Thank you,

It's an estimation of the time remaining based on the estimation minus the time worked.

Here you can check some information regarding it.

Oh, okay. So the team over estimated the work of the various tickets by 8hrs all together.

Thank you!
