Do you want just one total for the specified folder, or a line for each subfolder as well?

Here's a starting place for you, save as a VBS and adjust the directory name at the top. It displays the results to the screen, but you can easily place into a file using redirection, as in:

cscript //nologo filesze.vbs > filesize.csv

sFolder = "c:\ee\temp"

Set oFS = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

ShowFolderDetails oFS.GetFolder(sFolder)

Sub ShowFolderDetails(oFolder)
   For Each oFile in oFolder.Files
      Wscript.echo oFolder.Path & "," & oFile.Name & "," & Round(oFile.Size / 1024 / 1024, 2)
   Next
   For Each oSubFolder In oFolder.Subfolders
      ShowFolderDetails(oSubFolder)
   Next
End Sub

Open in new window
