I need a Windows Explorer-type program which will tell me how much
space is in each folder.

I try to archive CDs with music and want to know how much remaining
space there is as I move stuff from one folder to my folder of music
to be burned.

Currently I use Windows Explorer and Treesize Pro, and tandem between
the two programs. Treesize doesn't allow me to move stuff, but does
give the space information. Explorer does the moves, but doesn't give
space information.

But it's a pain bouncing back and forth between the two programs, and
refreshing after I've done each move. Does anyone know of a
combination of the two in one program?

Why not learn to do simple math in your head?

Check out Total Commander.
It allows you a two pane view of your disk.
One pane can be your disk folder structure and the other can be (what they
call) Quick View panel. (Good ol' Norton Commander Style)
Select the folder on the left (or right as the case may be :-)) ), in my
case c:\help and the other pane in Quick View mode will immediately tell you
as an eg.:

C:\help

Total space occupied:
9,490,935 bytes in 13 file(s)

Actual space used (considering cluster size)
on source drive: 9,515,008 Bytes
