Is there a way to see the size of a directory and its content with the Filezilla client?
Recursive totals are not implemented for casual usage.
Directory totals are below each filelist. Number of items and total size for that directory is shown. To get correct results do not have any filename filters enabled.
In case you mean recursive totals, that will not be implemented for casual usage. Due to the way FTP works the overhead is significant and puts a large load on the server (in addition to taking a lot of time).
That being said, you can use the remote search feature. Just do not enter any search criteria except for the directory.
Source Check Folder Size & Contents Count?
Workaround (very inefficient)
- Click on the folder(s) whose size you want to calculate
- Click on "Add files to queue"
This will scan all folders and files and add them to the queue.
look at the queue pane and below it (on the status bar) you should see
a message indicating the queue size.
