Hi Boss,
Your app is amazing, useful and so fast. I have one suggestion -

Include an option to index folder size when creating File List from added folders.
Just like the option 'Index Folder Size' in Indexes section.

Thanks Boss

Loving user

I am not "Boss" , but I think I can answer your question.

Everything already does that. This is an example of am EFU file (X:\Program Files does not exist, so Everything has no possibility to read the information from disk):

Are you using an old version of Everything?

Yes it does include folder size.
Actually I opened the efu file in notepad and it showing 0 there for folder size.
Maybe it calculates folder size by adding sizes of children files during render.

Thanks for pointing it out.
My problem solved :D

Not sure offhand, but maybe it needs; Options | Indexes -> Index folder size, to be set?
(If it is, it should be showing the size in the .efu [likewise, in notepad].)

EFU's don't store foldersizes; those are calculated, as @pk1991 already found out.

Makes sense too: if you have a folder (size 200 MB) with 100MB *.txt files and 100 MB *.pdf files and you export folder\*.txt to an EFU file, the foldersize (as stored in the Everything database) would be wong for this EFU.
