Manage space and storage

It just boggles my mind how there can be an entire support area called "Manage space and storage" without one tool or tip as to how to properly manage ones files and file sizes. There are literally no tools for me to use to find out how much space any particular directory is taking up. I know dropbox want to sell space but this isn't the way to go about doing it. It doesn't matter how much space I have I still need tools for managing that space. At the bare minimum I need to be able to see how much space any particular directory or folder is taking up. Until this is sorted out this site is nothing but amateur hour.

COMPLETELY agree. No matter how much space you have you need to be able to managae your space used. This is very frustrating.

Its a transparency issue: DropBox will tell us when its time for a shakedown for cash. They won't tell us how to control our costs.

The ability to see file size online has always existed, and the ability to calculate folder size was added some time ago. See the following help articles for more information.
