And I whole heartedly agree:
Surely the microsoft gurus could leave it to the owner of the computer to choose whether or not he or she would like to see the folder size displayed as is the file size.
In these times of information overload it is easy to loose large files and subfolders among the many unspecified folders on our computer
Is there not a fix for this erroneous shortfall available to those of us that would like to order our folders by size to easily optimise our disk space usage.
