Program's that I'm using myself - Freeware and purchased:
FolderNavigator is a 100% FREE folder/subfolder and file Explorer, that shows you the size and number of files for each folder/subfolder, and navigate them easily:
I use it, when my drives needs a clean up, to determine which of the folders to take care about.
But the main reason is, that my backup or syncronization reports, sometimes tells me about different number of folders/files and total sizes, but not the reason about which files the difference is about.
Maybe take a look at my 3 minutes example movie that's only about 9 files syncronized between 2 drives, but with different total sizes, and my syncronization report only shows:
Searching Source: 1 folders 9 files 348.406.671 bytes
Created Backup: 1 folders 9 files 348.371.011 bytes
Difference: 0 folders 0 files 35.660 bytes
The reason could be, that my syncronize was done with compression, but it wasn't. With only 9 files the reason could easily be searched in Explorer.exe, but imagine if it was thousands of files, and your syncronization report only shows:
Searching Source: 323 folders 93.282 files 107.610.254.321 bytes
Created Backup: 323 folders 93.202 files 18.104.22.168 bytes
Difference: 0 folders 82 files 505.020.198 bytes
The solution is to use FolderNavigator:
USAGE: After installing the FolderNavigator, right click a folder or a disk in Explorer.exe, and then select FolderNavigator in the context menu.
