If you in excess of the pointer over the folder, it will present folder size and file specification. If you accomplish not have this make active, please follow the following steps you have to go to windows explorer and from there select organize drop down and then choose folder and search options from their go to view and then Select the Display file size information within folder tips check box, and after doing all these steps you have to click on OK.

I donít believe you recognize the necessity from the OP. even though Windows is a methodically file based OS it has subsequently to no basic functions in support of file systems that additional OSs for example *nix do include. Even though criticized for decades Microsoft appear unwilling to present any moreover. They appear to care regarding the stupid end-user where they acquire their $$$ from and not the power client. The type of tool you require is something comparable to the underneath, and Microsoft requires a kick up to sort them out.

Run cmd.exe to obtain a command prompt. (Within Windows 7, powershell does not perform for this, FYI.) Then perform it again, so having two of them release side by side. In all window in the direction of go to the directories you wish for to compare. (The use of 'cd' command. If you feel comfortable with this, then you should probably go with external services, unless you want to learn things command prompt.). "Dir / b> a.txt 'type in one window and" dir / b> b.txt' on the other. Now you have two text files that list the contents of each directory. The flag b / half-naked, which removes the directory listing to file names only. B.txt moves in the same folder as a.txt. 'Fc b.txt a.txt' type. The command 'fc' files means to compare. This will spit out a list of differences between two files, with an additional line of text above and below all dissimilarity, so you are acquainted with where they are. For more alternative on how the output is formatted, type 'fc /? ďAt the prompt. You be able to also pipe the dissimilarity in an additional file using somewhat like 'a.txt b.txt differences.txt fc>'.

You know, there was something in Windows 7, which would put two folders side by side, where the folder windows were just playing, and somehow that was supposed to provide a "comparison" of the contents of the two folders. It is not working well enough (and I'm trying to find a good solution for now), but that was a feature that was supposed to be there for Windows 7. I hope now you are clear with your doubt thank you.
