1.) The folder size in Windows with more decimal places!


Want to display folder size with more decimal places in Windows? From Vista through Windows 10, there is no way to adjust the number of decimal places in Windows Explorer by default. But for this reason I developed a solution and integrated it into Quad Explorer!
 
The following options are available in Quad Explorer for Windows:
 
- Use of system size information
- Use of Q-Dir's internal size information
- Display folder size in different units:
  - Byte
  - Kilobytes
  - Megabyte
- Automatic display adjustment depending on folder size:
  - Thousands separation
  - No decimal part
  - Single-digit fractional part
  - Two-digit decimal part
  - Three-digit decimal part
  - Automatic adjustment of the fractional part
 
The ability to display more decimal places for folder size gives you a more accurate representation of storage usage, helping you analyze and manage your files.

2.) Advantages and disadvantages of folder size in Windows with more decimal places!

The decision to show more decimal places for folder size in Windows has both advantages and disadvantages:

Advantages:

1. More precise analysis:

With more decimal places, users get a more accurate idea of ​​how much space a particular folder actually takes up. This allows for more precise analysis of memory usage.

2. Finer distinction:

By displaying more decimal places, users can see smaller differences in the size of folders. This is particularly useful when it comes to prioritizing between similarly sized folders or clearing up disk space.

3. Optimized storage management:

A more precise representation of folder size can help manage storage space more efficiently by allowing users to more accurately determine which files or folders need to be deleted or moved to free up space.

Disadvantages:

1. Complexity:

An increased number of decimal places can clutter the display and potentially overwhelm users, especially if they do not need detailed analysis of folder size.

2. Confusion:

For some users, displaying more decimal places may be confusing because they are not used to seeing such detailed information. This can lead to misunderstandings and impact the user experience.

3. Display slowdown:

Calculating and displaying more decimal places for the folder size can cause the display to become slower, especially for folders with many subfolders or large files. This can impact usability, especially on older or slower computers.




Overall, more decimal places for folder size in Windows can improve accuracy and enable more precise storage management, but they can also introduce complexity and confusion. It is important to consider user needs and capabilities before implementing this feature.




3.) How can I find out the folder size using on-board tools without Quad Explorer?

You can find out the folder size in Windows without Quad Explorer using on-board tools. Here are some methods:

1. Windows Explorer:

- Open Windows Explorer.

- Navigate to the desired folder.

- Right-click the folder and select "Properties".

- The folder's properties display the size of the folder and the number of files and subfolders it contains.

2. Command Prompt (CMD):

- Open Command Prompt.

- Type the command `dir /s /-c` followed by the path of the folder and press Enter.

- This command lists all files and subdirectories in the specified folder and displays the total size of the folder at the end.

3. PowerShell:

- Open PowerShell.

- Use the command Get-ChildItem -Path "Path of the folder" -Recurse | Measure-Object -Property Length -Sum  to recursively determine the size of the folder.

- Replace "folder path" with the actual path of the folder you want to find the size of.

Info:

These methods allow you to find out folder size in Windows without additional software or Quad Explorer. You can choose the one that best suits your needs and that seems easiest to you.
