Umm ... that picture doesn't show folder sizes.

FreeCommander has a "folder size" setting.

You can also adjust the configuration of the panes (horizontal or vertical).

so the only way to get the file folder size displayed is to get third party software?

it looks that way but as Arc pointed out if you hover the mouse cursor over selected folder you will see the the size (make sure you have "display file size information in folder tips" ticked in folder options view settings)
