On my Server 2003 server, when I view details, the size of the folder is not shown like it is for file size.  Is there a way to have the folder size displayed in the details view of Windows Explorer?  It's a pain to have to hold your mouse over each folder and wait for the info dialogue to pop up and it's more of a pain to have to right click on it and see it's properties.

Thanks

Cliff

G'day mate.

not sure for explorer like you asked.  Personally I use Servant Salamander for my work with DIR's

Grab a demo here.  Once you are in the software, from memory the command to list DIR sizes is CTRL + SHIFT + F7.

It's a great dual pane task manager that is great for working with dir.  

Hope that helps
