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

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.

One is the whole registry and the other is only an export for the default user.. So basically this is copied when a user profile is created
