    Running windows XP and when I am in windows explorer, is there a way for me to display the SIZE of a folder? all i can get to show up is the folder NAME, TYPE and DATE MODIFIED.

    I am hoping there is a way for me to view the SIZE of that folder.

    what I am looking to do is delete folders with a size of ZERO from a certian directory on my hard drive, and I dont want to have to go thru hundreds of folders individually and see whats in them.

    thanks for any help you can offer

    ^^ that is already checked - thanks for the tip. However - that does not give you the size of the folder in the display window.

    the red circle on the attached image is what I was looking for. Originally I thought it could be displayed in the blue circle
