How to find number of files in any folder in Dropbox Online

How to find number of files in any folder in Dropbox Online

I'm using Dropbox online to store 600+ GB of files. When I access any given folder, I've learned how to determine the size of any folder or individual file. What I can't figure out is how to determine the number of files in any folder. Looking for some help.

Hi @brad1136, thanks for posting on the Community!

Currently, there isn't a method to determine the number of files in any folder on the Dropbox site directly.

This can only be done on the OS if the Dropbox desktop application is installed by using the built-in features there.

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
