If you're shooting RAW your file is significantly smaller.

I shoot  RAW so the file is smaller, of course, but is the number of bytes in the RAW file shooting in APS-C the same as if I had cropped down to the same size from the full frame image? Other than it "looking bigger" in the viewfinder, I think the end result is the same.
