Hi,
if you open de recycle bin, and you select all items (CTRL + A) then you see in the bottom the total amount...
Is this a solution for you?

Hi, i just tested it out, in addition a zipfile with step by step what i did. After selecting all, i can see in the bottom the total amount of all selected files (in this case two example files).
I created the attached file with Problems Recorder in Win 7 (psr.exe). You can open this with IE.
Maybe it's another issue?
Kind reg,

I don't see an issue, you wanted to know the total amount in the recycle bin and you showed that amount in your psr file. Is there something I am missing here?
