    I'm trying to clean up my HDD and realized that it would be much easier if there was a "view folder size" option in Windows Explorer. I looked online and apparently, Windows does not have such a thing for some reason.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on "view folder size" freeware program? Does Lenovo offer something like this?

    Thanks

    you could just right click and select properties to get the size of any folder.

    Directory opus is a great file manager. As one of its capabilities it will allow you to setup a column that shows the folder size.

    Thanks for the options guys. I'm going to try them both out. To gordoncahill, although I'm aware of both right clicking and of the tip balloon, I have a lot of folders and it's a lot of pain to right click and compare each and every one with each other.
