    how to find size of a folder and also free space

    Hi guys

    is there a way I can retrieve the size of a folder (in MB), and also is there a way of retrieving how much free space there is on the 'appdrive$' and the capacity too?

    Thanks a lot guys,

    -Mel

    I don't think there is an object that gets directory sizes yet. Would be nice to be able to do this.

    Re: how to find size of a folder and also free space

    This is why I have not upgraded to MMF2 yet. A program that should be able to "produce" other programs but has not built-in basic features like ones mentioned is not a serious program.

    My idea is that basic features like these and other functions, that can easily be obtained by MMF accessing to windows API, should be the first to be considered while developing a program like MMF.

    Reading all the posts of this forum, considering:
    - the tons of bugs not jet fixed;
    - lots of extension thet will not be converted for MMF2 and
    - basic functions not yet implemented,
    I, like lots of other users, will not upgrade in short time.

    How about the tons of bugs that have been fixed, the lots of extensions that are unique to MMF2, and the "basic" functions that can easily be implemented in extensions?

    "I don't think there is an object that gets directory sizes YET."

    Should we wait MMF3 to have this?

    Should we wait MMF3 to have a serious File Object?

    Why I have to insert in a frame the File Object, Recursive file object, DirSize, List object, PowerApp, and Yaso, ALL TOGETHER, if I want simply to know if there is enough space in a drive to copy the content of MyDocuments folder into?

    If you want to make an extension which incorporates all of these features then you can.

    I use MMF because I'm not a programmer.

    If I would be a programmer, I will be very glad not to use MMF for my "developing" needs.
