    File Size Variations


      Real curious as to why there is such a great change in file size for the same file.  Specifically, I attached a swf file to an email and it showed up as 5.9kb I then downloaded that same file from the email and in the finder window the file size was indicated to be 16kb.  I further right clicked on the same file located on the desktop and clicked info now the file size was 120kb.


      My question is which of these represent the real file size.  The reason I ask is that for a class project we are to build a banner ad and the file size is limited to 40kb.  I am telling the instructor that it is only 5.9kb she is saying 120 kb.  Any ideas
