Size of the folders in Windows Explorer

I need a tool that will show me the sizes of every folder, I have to right click properties to verify the size of a folder in windows explorer. Is there a better way of doing this?

Use Tree Size Free Edition, or Tree Size Pro trial.
Tree Size Pro trial
Tree Size Free Edition
I find these 2 to be the best, whether Server 2003, Server 2008, XP, Vista or Windows 7

I back up the 2 other guys: I too use Treesize. You can blindly grant them the points :-)

I will also stand by TreeSize. Awesome little app.

My preference is an old app called DFolder.

It integrates into the shell. When you view the properties of a dirve or folder, you get a Size tab
and will show you all the folders with their size. You can sort it by Size if need be.

Haven't used TreeSize Pro, been using SizeExplorer Pro for a few yrs now and quite like it. SizeExplorer look a little cleaner than TreeSize Pro, imo, but may not have the gazillion reporting features, a lot that I wouldn't use, that TreeSize Pro has.

Screenshots for both...
