Incorrect size of folder c:\Users

The behaviour described in the bug report is either by design, or would be far too complex/time-consuming to be changed

Incorrect size of folder c:\Users

Post by *maks1313 » 2017-12-15, 11:37 UTC

Size of a folder includes size of it's child folders that are links.

For example on Russian Windows 7 64bit.
Folder "c:\Users" contains 2 child folders: "c:\Users\All Users" and "c:\Users\Все пользователи" both are links to c:\ProgramData.

When I press space on c:\Users I expect to see size of this folder.
But in Total Commander this size includes size of both child "folders" which are links to another folder.

When I open Properties dialog in Explorer it shows size of the folder without sizes of its links.
