Show and retain folder sizes

Post by CharlesF » Thu 16 Dec, 2010 23:25

I'd really like to see FAR to be able to optionally show and retain folder sizes lice File Commander does.

F3 on dir? I don't know how File commander does it.
Maybe you want the dir size by default, that would be slow.

Maybe the RealSize plugin does what you need? http://plugring.farmanager.com/plugin.php?pid=124&l=en

Good Idea.
I think it is very necessary specially when we are looking for large files to cleanup Hard disk.
I wonder if Far Manager some day be able to do something like this application:
http://www.foldersizes.com/
It would be wonderful.

Isn't Size Manager what you're looking for?

Hello HaRT,
Thank you...
But it can have some improvement...
For example it need a language file for English; in my computer it shows "?" characters instead of KB or MB ...
And it would be better if process the files in background so users be able to change the directory and see the results immediately like Ctrl+Q.
And I can't bother myself pressing a shortcut key for each directory.
But if Far have the feature I'm enjoying to use it, because I love Far.

If Far have a selectable option to keep showing folder sizes when changing folders without having to select them and pressing F3 each time, it will be the thing.

Regards to developers.
