Need help to see folder size

Post by *ChiMan »

Hi,

I'm a newbie with Total Commander but I really like to use TC from the first time I installed it on my PC.

I do have one question and hopefully you can help me.

How can I see the folder size of each (sub) folder immediatly?
I know you can check it by:
- alt+shift+enter
- use the plugin DirSizeCalc (need to click spacebar)

But what I would like is to see without any keyboard buttons.

Is there a solution?

How about command: cm_CountDirContent ?
Can someone explain how to install this command if this is the solution?

Many thanks in advance

DirSizeCalc provides two types of fields. If you add a "on demand" field you have to press the space key to see the directory size. If you add a "background" field the directory sizes are calculated each time you enter a directory.

Many thanks for your quick respons Lefteous.

I've checked all setting in TC as well as the ini files. But how can I add DirSizeCalc as background?

  2. click on "configure custom columns" (dialog opens)
  3. Click on the new button (dialog opens)
  4. Click on the "Add column" button
  5. Click on the + button
  6. Click on dirsizecalc -> Size (background)
  7. Add more fields if you want (repeat steps 4-6)
