Show the Folder Size (File number or data size)

When using the web interface, it would be helpful to see the sizes of folders, not just files. I am doing a lot of file movement to/from our network drive, and typically a few files are not successfully moved. I would like to be able to see the folder size so I can confirm that everything made it over. This is a feature of Box, and it is frustrating that it is not a feature in Egnyte. Even just the number of files in each folder without any additional steps would be great.

Our current plan is to address this by extending our folder options dialog to include information about the size and count of items - both of the current versions as well as for all older versions of files.  This will let you quickly see the size for a given folder.

We don't plan on populating this in the "Size" column of the folder listing.  While this would be great to have, it is not something that is feasible to do from a performance perspective.  Box can support a feature like this because they don't have any way to remove a user's permission in subfolders so the size of a folder is the same for all users.  In Egnyte, we support a much richer permission model and the consequence is that a single folder may have different sizes for different users.

Any ETA on this feature?  This is desperately needed.

Hello,

We understand the need for this feature. 

There is no ETA for it yet. Our folder size computations don't yet support non-admin users, so we're waiting on the other supporting teams for that since this would be misleading for power/standard users.

We will publish the release on the What's New section.

Thanks.

Once this is complete, can you implement a "View Folder Properties" button into the right click context menu of the desktop connect app?  I imagine this would just open up the WebUI to display this info.  Alternatively, it could open up a local window, which would be better, but probably more difficult to implement.

Can we have an overview for each folders like how many files inside without click into and count?

I'm managing some folders and need a few teammates response for updating, it'll great help if I can have an quick overview without click into and check detail.

We are planning to offer the count/size info for a folder (and all of its descendants) in the folder options dialog, similar to what Windows Explorer and Mac Finder do.
