i presume you have the files and folders diplayed as icons or thumbnails if you have the view of the explorer set up to show details then youll have the size as well as the date last modified probably the only way to view files etc in explorer if oyu ask me anyway it gives you all the information that you could possibly want at your finger tips all the time. So if you set this as the default setting for all folders the youll nevr hav to waoory about it agin

I've been using the file called Windu.exe to list the size of any folder (I downloaded it long time ago and it works with Win98, Win2k and XP).
You can download it here
You have to make a shortcut refers to Windu.exe (I named its shortcut as Space Usage) in <b><font color=red>Sendto</b></font color=red> folder. If you want to know how much space of any folder used, right-click on that folder and send to Windu. It will list how much space that folder is used.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

In Windows Explorer, if you are in a folder it will show the size of all the files but not folders on the status bar at the bottom. But only if you don't have anything highlighted.

Well if you right-click on a folder and go to PROPERTIES, it will display the total size of the folder, but quicker than that i dont think it is possible.
