    Is there a way to show the folder sizes in the main window (instead of "Get Info") ?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jesse,

    No, sorry, there is not.

    The problem is that the server does not have that information itself, and so cannot tell Fetch that information. (If the server was able to tell us, we would display it.) So Fetch would have to calculate the size for each folder, which would involve looking at every file inside every folder. That could make displaying the file list very slow for lists that contain lots of folders (especially if those folders contained a lot of files themselves); so in the interest of keeping things speedy and reducing network traffic, Fetch only calculates individual folder sizes when you ask it to.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,
