I am having trouble getting DirSizeCalc to work. Please Help

Post by *adabo »

I was looking for a hotkey that would show all the sizes of the directories in the active panel. Something similar to pressing spacebar when a folder is selected and showing the size except the hotkey would do this function to all the folders at once.

So I did some searching and found that dirsizecalc plugin would be the answer to this request. However I have not been able to figure out how to set it up. In the plugins configuration it shows up in the WDX category and the path is c:\Program Files\totalcmd\plugins\wdx\dirsizecalc\ When I configure custom columns and choose a plugin property, dirsizecalc is empty.

Even if this is working, I still don't know how to make it a hotkey. Is this even possible?

Why don't using the existing hotkey for doing that without any plugin.
From the Keyboard help:
ALT+SHIFT+ENTER
The contents of all directories in the current directory are counted.
The sizes of the directories are then shown in the 'full' view instead of the string <DIR>.

Having Everything configured to index Size its also very fast
if its enabled in TC Configuration under Operation.
Windows 10 Home x64 Version 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1110)
TC 10.00 x64 / x86
Everything 1.5.0.1269a (x64)

Thank you! That is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't know it was possible.
