Folder Size

By Brio Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
It's not feature rich, but this simple add-on creates a new option to see the size of folders in Windows Explorer. Though Folder Size proved very easy to use, a Help file or other guide would have been beneficial to let new users know what steps to take to use this program. After installation, you'll need to make sure Windows Explorer is set to Details view, then you can right-click anywhere in the right-hand pane and you'll find the new Folder Size column option. You'll now see the new information as you browse folders. Folder Size doesn't offer an extensive feature set, but it does exactly what it says and any user concerned with folder size will benefit from this simple freeware tool.

Developer's Description

Folder Size for Windows adds a new column to the Details view in Windows Explorer. The new column shows not only the size of files, but also the size of folders. It keeps track of which folders you view, and scans them in the background so you can see complete size of all files within the folder. It's very useful for cleaning up your disk. Once you get used to having that information available, a directory listing simply looks incomplete without it.
