If theres one thing that pisses me off, is to find that my hard-drive is getting full and I really don’t know “what happened” – besides the fact that I download too much and forget where and what I downloaded.
So here, I found a solution, how to display your folder size in Windows XP with a tool: Folder Size for Windows 2.4
1. download the file Folder Size for Windows 2.4 from sourceforge (right-click, save-as)
2. to verify if your PC is 32–bit or 64–bit, do the following:
2a) go to command prompt: start-menu >> Run >> type ‘cmd’
2b) when command prompt opens, type: set and look for a line like the attached:
If you find anything that looks like X86….you’ve got a 32–bit. Besides, 64–bit computers are quite rare to find.
3. Install the downloaded file:
– double click to RUN the downloaded file
– click ‘next’
– you can select any of the other options…i selected ‘complete’
– lastly, click ‘finish’
4) Lastly, open your C-drive or any drive that contains folders, right click on the column headers and select folder-size, like in the pic below:
Note that there are many other options that could be displayed by right-clicking on the colum-headers.
