File Size Question . . . .Canon 300D - Photography

I am new to the digital world having just got a Canon Rebel Digital (300D). Perhaps this is a simplistic question. . . But . . . I am not getting the file sizes that the owner's manual indicates. I have the camera set to L - smoothed and anticipated files in the 3.2 meg. However when "explored" using XP set up with a NTFS drive "Details" only show a file of 2.07 meg. Responses or insight are welcomed???? Thanks Wayne...

    Because the camera is performing JPEG compression on the image, the end
    file size can vary widely with the content of the photo. The camera will
    estimate larger file sizes than you'll see on average simply for the sake of
    safety ("Hey, you said I could get 12 more shots, and I only got 11!").

    I used a D300 for a day, and out of a hundred shots, the average file size
    was 2.4 megs - individual sizes were as low as 1.8 or 1.9 megs, with most
    being 2.1-2.5, and certain shots were as large as 4.3 megs.

    JPG is a compressed format, so the file size will change significantly
    depending on the amount of detail in the image. An image with many unique,
    non-repetitive, colors and textures will be much larger than an image with
    large monotone areas.

    Also, there is a BIG change in image size when going up in ISO settings. I
    think the specs are for an average image at ISO 100.
