Is it possible to change the range of sizes Windows uses for the 'Group by' feature? Apparently 128MB is Gigantic. Who knew?

  Tiny      0 - 10 KB
  Small     10 - 100 KB
  Medium    100 KB - 1 MB
  Large     1 - 6 MB
  Huge      16 - 128 MB
  Gigantic  > 128 MB

Microsoft is still stuck in floppy drive mind sets. Do you know how many floppy drives it would take for a file over 128MB (assuming you split it with WinRAR or something). – kobaltz Dec 29 '11 at 1:25
I wonder how old these values are? I know the property sheets have existed since the days of 98 . . . – surfasb Dec 29 '11 at 1:36
@kobaltz It'd take only one floppy drive, but you'd need 89 3.5" 1.44MB HD floppy disks. Or perhaps 365 5.25" 360KB DD floppy disks. ;) Reminds me of loading old Sierra games. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 29 '11 at 3:05
@techie lol. true. I remember installing Word/Excel on my Mac with 75MB HDD space. 30 some odd floppy disks later, i was painfully typing. – kobaltz Dec 29 '11 at 3:13

I think the answer is "No, there is no way to change the range of sizes".

That is the easy answer :). I was mainly curious if someone has tried to hack it in some way. Probably not, but I will leave this question open for a bit in case someone has. – aland Dec 30 '11 at 14:12
