Extra progress information when scanning a folder

Post by markb » 30 Mar 2015, 22:54

Hello,

I have been using getfoldersize for a while - very useful for scanning large folder structures and doesn't crash like lots of other tools I tried.....

I wondered if a feature might be added to a future release ?

When scanning a subdirectory the details of the folder do not appear in the folder list until the full folder tree below the subfolder has been scanned.

Could a progress message of some kind be given in the status bar alongside current folder being scanned - showing number of files and total size so far for the whole folder tree

This would give an indication of what has been processed so far in addition to the name of the folder currently being scanned - handy if the subfolder tree contains lots of files for example and may take a long time to scan completely.
