    Hey guys, my work has asked us to review all our documents on the network drives as they would like to archive files and free up space on the network.

    Is there any free programs out there that can give you the total size of each folder within a network directory?

    This would make it so much easier to see which folders contain the greatest sized files and should be reviewed.
    I'm aware that I could right-click and check the properties on the folders individually but there are a lot of folders within our network folder.

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    That seems to want money?

    Also got anything easier on the eyes, as in a program that will run in Windows with a GUI?

    I use TreeSize Pro 2. The latest version is 4 I think, but it its a trail version, whereas 2 lets you use it forever (but bugs you to buy it like Winrar does).

    It does work with network drives and folders. And has graphs and such to accompany the tree view.

    Official site with screenshots: http://www.jam-software.com/treesize/
    I don't know where you could find version 2 though.

    Yeah when I searched TreeSize was one of the first I found and tried, but it asked me to purchase the full version in order to use it on Network directories.

    It may be outside of the original topic but cracker once linked me to Sequoiaview:
    http://www.win.tue.nl/sequoiaview/

    It is a freeware graphical based viewer with file highlighting.
