How do I get Windows Explorer to show the size of a folder? It will only
show file sizes for single files in each directory. If there is a folder,
it does not show how big that folder is. I'd be greatful if anyone can help
me with this, thank you.

Windows XP does not display fise size in Windows Exploere by default, you
need a plug in.

Try the ViewFolderSize Pro
http://www.moveax.com/viewfoldersizepro/

Very handy utility - it will show all your folders sorted by size
directly in Windows Explorer. The program is fast, efficient and gives
you a lot of configurable options. The program can show you your disk
space usage as a diagram, making it easy to see.
