can it be done without the loop? "directory filesize"

Hi just a quick one,

is there an easy way to do bellow without the looping?
<cfset imageTotal = 0>
<cfdirectory directory="#application.prodImagePath#" action="list" name="dir" >
<cfoutput query="dir">
<cfset imageTotal = imageTotal + #dir.size#>
<cfoutput>#imageTotal# bytes</cfoutput>

not sure this is easier but it`s an alternative
hope it helps

<cfdirectory directory="#application.prodImagePath#" action="list" name="dir" >
<cfquery name="getSum" dbtype="query">
SELECT SUM(size) AS dirSize FROM dir


Hi thanks for the post, could you explain how the database looking query works with the cfdirectory. looks interesting.  do you think this would be any better on performance?
