With an XP desktop, when I click Start\My Computer and place my cursor on the icon of the C:drive I see the drivesí memory space used and the free memory left. Good.

Can I do something similar to see the memory space used by a particular folder, say C:\Documents and Settings? I know how to seethe memory usage of each ofl the files in the Documents and Settings folder but I donít get a total figure that way.

Thanks, ... batpark

Edit: Documents and Settings is not a real folder, it's a Junction point/Hard link
