How can I see the folder size on dropbox.com

Hi all!

 

I have great news! The long waited request for the ability to see folder sizes on web (dropbox.com) is now live!

 
To enable it
  • Open dropbox.com and go to 'files'
  • On your file/folder view, click on the arrow-down Modified’ and select Size’
  • Click on the arrow-down Modified’ and select Size’
 
 
  • Then click on the folder you want to calculate the size
 
  • Click on Calculate size” (on the right-hand side, last link)
 
Voilá:
If you select more than one folder the 'Calculate size' option will not appear. The 'Calculate size' option will only appear if the 'Size' column is displayed.

Thank you for the tutorial and sharing it (I tested it... works as advertised).

This is a great step in the right direction!

Do you have plans to make it possible to use with multiple folders selected?

Is there no way to save the column types? Currently, they revert to Modified and Members each time the page is refreshed.

Hi.

 

Nice addition.

Hoever, this doesn't seem to work when you have folders in folders.

 

Plus, you have to refresh the page for the changes to take effect.

 

Chrome, Mac0S 10.11.6

 

Thank you

Hi @Joseph C.23

 

I wasn't able to replicate. What happens when you try to calculate the folder size?
