It will look through all directories on the C: drive and report each one to you. At the end will be a summary of total found and space used. I just did this on my system and got:
Total Files Listed: 12777 File(s) 6,573,696,577 bytes 0 Dir(s) 30,771,585,024 bytes free
If you wanted to save to results you could redirect the output to a file: dir c:\*/jpg /s > alljpgs.txt then notepad alljpgs.txt when it finishes.

But, I wonder, if there isn’t a “more modern” way that would present the data in a table-like format, showing columns filename, folder, and size and totaling up the memory used in each folder. Can XP do that? Does anyone know of an external utility that does something like that?

There are probably free ones as well but I know PD allows you to use filters so you could show only .jpg files.
Just found this one: xplorer2. One of the capabilities it lists is Filter and select with wildcards. Might do what you want.

With my Dell desktop with XP ... what is an easy way to determine how much of my C:\hard-drive is being consumed by my JPG images (that are stored in many separate folders)? Can I get a listing of every JPG file (*.jpg) in C:\ ?
The same question, on this topic here, more or less I think, as asked by you in September last year on the quote above, when I pointed out to you that jpegs or indeed any other file did not as such take up or use memory, but hard drive space, until of course you open one.
However on this topic you again ask
memory used in each folder
May I ask if we have answered the EXACT point you are asking, or are we, both Ztruker and myself missing the ACTUAL query you are making, if so please do tell us.
