#9 Option to choose which disks to calculate size for.


A good feature for this service would be if the user
could select which drives he/she wants the service to
calculate the folder size for.

This may solve a bug as well, as the user could choose
to not calculate the folder size for a removable device
therefore freeing up that device to allow easy ejection
(without restarting the service).

This also helps when there are many users connected to
a large network drive. Imagine the performance hit when
you have 200 people calculating the size of a 1TB
network drive.

    I'm planning on adding this for the next version (2.4). I'll
    probably keep it simple at first and just let the user turn
    on and off drive types (removable, network).

    First, I think the feature should be
    "Option to choose which disks NOT to calculate size for"

    Secondly, it will be better to be able to specify a folder whose size the user is not interested in. Then, FolderSize should avoid calculating size for that folder and any of it's children at any level.
