Windows 7: Folder Size for Win 7


24 Apr 2013   #21

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
 
 

This may be somewhat moot since OP is banned but I do have a program called Folder Size which I also had when I had XP. I kinda like it even tho' I don't know what all of it means, but I'm a n00b, you guys are more experienced.
While I'm at it, what does "Attributes" mean & should I pay any attention to it?

A couple of example Attributes are "Hidden" and "Read-Only".

I'm sorry,I wasn't clear on my question. I meant the Attributes in my screen shot. Or is that something I should have googled to find instead of coming here?

Here's different shot of other ones.

It looks like they are abbreviations, and you can get a detail view. Perhaps click on the attributes header?

HSA Hidden, System, Archive?
