for the big size folder, it will show for example "1,630,252 KB" in the status bar. Is it possible to show the size more than 1024 KB in MB unit?

I think it will more concise.

    It can, go to
    Start->Control Panel->Switch to Classic View->Folder Size->Display tab->Format->Compact (2.45 GB)

    The other option only does KB; it would be nice if it had an option to display units in other units, keeping the numbers in that unit...
    Having the units in bytes would help find out if small changes were made to the file, and having the units in a disk mediums size would help in making up backups to that medium. It would be nice if the user could make up their own size too.
