What is the association between the registry "default" file size and the exported .default hive text size

TECH B asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
C:\windows\system32\config\default file size is about 87M.  My exported hive for HKEY_USERS\.default is only about 1.3M.  

I've had issues with Lexmark and HP print drivers taking over the registry because of redirected printers on a terminal server.  I'm trying to clean this up.
