Re: Show Folder Size in Windows Explorer
Right, I understand that, however that's not what I am looking for. I want
the size column to display the size of all of the items in a folder as a
cumulative total. If I have 5 10MB files in a folder, I want to see 50MB in
the size column beside that folder. I don't want to have to hover my mouse
pointer over each folder to see what ones are the largest. Thank you so much
for your suggestion though Puppy Breath. I really appreciate it.
UNTIL it blows up I think I can fix it. IF it blows up I didn''''''''t touch
