Would like to know the number of files and directories

#1 Post by WLJones » 05.06.2015, 00:31

I'm using FCXE 2014 Build 665. Use the product every day. Under Add/Remove columns I've selected Files and Folders. I want to see how big these directories are. I only get the root totals. Is there a way to show the total number of folders and files for this directory?

I use FCXE to give me the size of the directory so I can back up to a DVD. Without going to each directory, tell me the number of directories and files from this point on.

Thanks for a great piece of work.

Try to use Properties... (Alt+Enter). It would show files/folders count for one/all selected items.

Or you can use the Quick view panel (using the toolbar/splitter button or Ctrl+Q customizable shortcut) for one selected item at a time.

Select the first item [..] for the current folder:

or any other, without having to browse them:

P.S. I can't figure out how to make Files and Folders columns to display anything... might be a bug.

Add the columns first and then try with program restart.

Oops! They show files/folders count.
