    Should be in-built in windows! Thanks for providing it as an open-source. The print screen on source forge isn't the correct one for Windows 7 (the one on the website is the correct one) ; the folder sizes appear in a different window.

    Great tool to provide a function that has always been missing from Windows: to show the size of folders. Does what it's supposed to do. Was working seamlessly in Win 7 - 64 bit and still works in Win 10, but I can't seem to quit out of it from the tray icon anymore like I could in Win 7. I have to stop it from the Task Manager. No big deal, but would be nice if any future update would address it.

    Always one of the first programs I install when working on a Windows XP machine. Completely invaluable.

    There's basically two versions of the program here: One for pre-Vista (NT, 2000, XP), and one for Vista and after. Pre-Vista it's integrated into Explorer; the necessary APIs to do that were removed in Vista, and were never reintroduced as far as I'm aware, and therefore you get the (kinda) clunky extra box attached to explorer windows to show folder sizes Vista-onwards. The pre-Vista version is flawless and is all you could ever want. Vista+ is fine and does its job, and even though it's less than desirable, the program is still all around done very well, and you have to keep in mind that this was all the developer was able to do with the APIs he was given. You may not keep it around for day to day use, but that's why you can turn it on/off with a click at the icon in the taskbar. It has its uses. When you need it, it's there. Otherwise, turn it off if it gets in the way. Makes no sense to complain about a) a free thing and b) something that you can turn off
