The Dropbox API doesn't offer a direct way to get the total size of a folder's contents, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. 

If you need to know the total size of the contents of a folder, you'd need to list all of the contents using /2/files/list_folder[/continue] and then sum up the `size`s for all of the files. (You can use the `recursive` parameter on /2/files/list_folder to request nested files too.)
