i’ve got a question using dolphin as filemanager. i can’t figure out how to see the size of a single folder (including subfolders). for example: i need the size of a folder “Documents” including the subfolders. actually i can only see the number of included elements but i need to now the size of the folder.
i appreciate your help
Right-click on the folder and select “Properties”
settings > config dolphin > view modes > details > folder size display > size of contents > depth of calc
this will be slower refresh in dolphin but will will show the contents under the size column in the details view
And then, click “Show in Filelight” –
Awesome!!! Just how to see? For me it shows the number of items in column “size”.
Another alternative: DirStat, either KDirStat (seems not available anymore) and QDirStat
filelight does the visualize thing.
Not as fancy as the others, but fast. As desktop app or servicemenu…GDU.
