2021 Can folder sizes be sorted like or with file sizes?

Post by rm_669 » Sun Feb 07, 2021 7:07 am

Hi,
My goal is to have a search results list that when sorted by 'size' will sort files AND folders together. Currently, folders are always sorted separately at the bottom of the results list.


Sorry for This repeat question which is asked several years ago, I came back here today and hope to see this on everything but sadly it is not here yet, I still using Instant File Founder till this date only because they have this option built-in. I really request you guys please consider this and add this option into Everything.

Thank you for your post.

Mixing folder and file sizes is a tricky one to do efficiently..

I have a feature in development called 'Index folders as files' which allows you to efficiently mix results for all sorts, except Size..

I have on my TODO list to add a 'Mix folder and file results together' option. However, this may take a second or two for 1million+ items.
