efu: context menu: total file size for folder/selected files

Postby regios » Fri Apr 07, 2017 11:04 am

With 1.4 the the right click context menu enables us to open properties and see the total file size of the selected files and/or folders. Add a similar feature inside .efu files. A simpler version of this feature that only sum the total size of selected items without recursing into folders would also be useful.

To show the total or current selection size in the status bar:
  • In Everything 1.4 or later, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the View tab.
  • Check Show size in status bar.
  • Click OK.

I had missed that. Thanks! Confirmed working inside .efu for offline files so that (premptively) solved half my suggestion.

As for the other half, there is currently no way to in .efu select a folder and get the recursive total size of all files below that folder (that are present in the .efu), right?

  • Click the Indexes tab.
  • Check Index folder size.
  • Click OK.
  • Reopen the efu file list.
