Folders to show percentage of space used

#1 Post by clanman » 16.03.2020, 12:31

It would be great if there were an option to show the percentage of disk space per folder in folder view. On top of this to have the option to sort folders bye size.

Example: if you have a 1TB drive that has 800GB used space then top of the drive would be highlighted 80% the width of the drive pane. The next highest space consuming folder may not contain the most files however what files that are there consume the second most amount of space.

I'm not sure what you mean, it's not % , but you can try this:

- menu > view > plain view folders
- menu > view > details
- menu > folder > size of folders
- menu > view > sort by > size

Thanks Dreamer. - menu > folder > size of folders sorted by size > Descending works as a workaround. :)

Just for clarification I was looking for this sorting ability in the tree view with gradient shadow over the folder name but as I said the above works.
