Ftp client that shows folder size

Hi guys,

I really need a ftp client that displays folder size. Do you know of such a client, possible a free one?

Have you tried FileZilla? That has always worked when I needed to check folder size. After connecting to the ftp server, just browse to the directory and the size is listed below the directory listing box.

Unfortunately, the FTP protocol doesn't support recursive folder size the way you want it displayed. you could try coding an app.

Thank you for your answer.
If I could code an app, I wouldn't have posted here.

Maybe someone got annoyed of this size display and found a sollution, and that's why I posted here.
I'll leave the question open, maybe someone can still help me.

I found a client that can do that, Magellan Explorer.
It doesn't do it automatically, but you can select multiple folders in a tree structure, go to Options->Foler size, and it displays the size of all the selected folders at the remote site.
