#9 Number of files

Next Release
Other (6)

Occasionally not only the used disk space is interesting, but also the number of files (e.g. thousands of files within one directory causing poor performance). Therefore I'd suggest to display the number of files in addition to the occupied space (maybe in a line below). And, allow to switch the view from "occupied space per directory" to "files per directory".
This should be easy to implement, because the number of files can be computed while computing the space occupied per directory.

    A light implementation is available in the next version (v1.3).
    There's not a special view for the moment, but the "folder details form" displays the number of files. The special view will be implemented in a further release (I don't forget it).

    The number of files is by default hidden by the Size options box, I have to resize the Details view...
    Something is slightly wrong in the layout.
