show folder size for every folder/subfolder on certain drive

Posted on 2004-11-17

Here at work, we have a shared network drive that most employees use to share files with each other.  The drive is now out of space.  The drive contains about hundred folders ( and subfolders ) and over 1,500 files.  Each folder is an employees own folder.  Is there an easy way to see which folder ( and / or subfolder ) is taking most of the space without looking at the properties of each folder/subfolder.

I'm kinda wanting a way to "tree out" the folders and subfolders and show the folder size of each.

We are using NT 4.0

    the program diruse should give you what you want. I think it is on Microsoft's web site or do a google search.

    Points to amscott - DIRUSE is part of the NT4 resource kit available on Microsoft's site (may be in newer OS resource kits as well).

    Best of the best?
    Try to use the 'Folder Size Explorer Extension'. I know it is for XP and 2000 but, try to use it on NT - I hope it will work...
