    Folder size in disk properties and folder properties


    I've just moved data from three HDs to one 8Tb hard drive. Everything is there, but the folder size reporting is weird, just weird. See attached...single top level folder is reported as 465Gb - folders within that are larger are reported as such (see pic 5 of 5 in the zip). I am able to see all the relevant folders, but am concerned that something is out of whack, and worried therefore that whatever might be a problem is perpetuated in the regular backup I do.

    See attached for details.

    :)

    Size folder in properties not correct

    Hi,

    When I look at a folder it says within properties the size of the folder is (149 MB (157,183,091 bytes))

    But this cannot be correct, because the same folder has a subfolder which contains 3.49 GB (3,754,815,334 bytes) data.

    How is this possible and how to set it back.

    how to view folder properties, including size

    Hi jm2008, right click on the folder while in the File Explorer, then hit Properties. You can catch multiple folders and right click Properties to see the collective size of these folders if you wish.

    Hope that helps.
