Why need to see folder size in Windows?



As you know, Windows does not show folder size directly. To see a folder size, you need to right-click it and select “Properties” menu item, it seems no problem.

But if you want to see the size of 100 folders, you need to click 200 times. Usually, when you do this action, you may need to find out the larger folders, and want to free some disk spaces, so, except click, click and click, you should copy the sizes and record them also. This is a tedious and boring manual work!

So, it’s time to liberate your hands and save your time now - when you want to clean the disk space by review the large folders.
