The FoldersReport utility scans a drive or a base folder that you select, and
displays essential information for each folder that it finds:
The size of all files inside the folder, The real files size on the disk,
number of files inside the folder, number of hidden files, number of compressed files,
and number of subfolders.
You can use this utility to easily find out which folders use the most space in your drive.

This utility can work in all 32-bit Windows operating systems: Windows 9x/ME,
Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
- If you scan a remote network NTFS drive of Windows NT/2000 from a Windows 9x/ME machine,
the "Size On Disk" field may contain wrong values, and you should not rely on it.
- On Windows NT/2000: If a folder is compressed, the "Size On Disk" field may contain
a value that a little different from the "Size On Disk" value in the Properties window
of the operating system. It's possibly caused by a bug in Windows operating system...

This utility is a standalone executable, and it's doesn't require any installation process or additional DLLs.
Just run the executable (folrep.exe), and start using it.
After you run it, select a drive or folder that you want to scan, and press the "scan" button.
The scanning process might take between a few seconds and a few minutes, depending on
the size of the folder and the subfolders inside it, and on the speed of your hardware.
After the scanning is finished, the information about all subfolders is displayed
on the main window of FoldersReport. You can select the desired folders, and save the
information into text or html file, or copy it to the clipboard.
here's a little explanation about each column in the main window:
||The full path name of the folder. If the "Tree Mode" option is checked, only the
folder name is displayed, without the entire path.
|Size Of Files
The total size of all files in the specified folder.
if "Include Subfolders In Totals" is checked, this value includes the size of all files
inside the subfolders of this folder.
|Size On Disk
The total size on the disk of all files in the specified folder.
if "Include Subfolders In Totals" is checked, this value includes the 'size on disk' of all files
inside the subfolders of this folder.
The value shown at this column is similar to the "Size On Disk" value in the properties window of a folder.
It's adjusted according to the cluster size of the drive and the compression of the files in it (in NTFS drives only).
On FAT drives, this value might be much greater than the "Size Of Files" value, especially if the files are very small.
Be aware that this column may show wrong values if you scan a remote NTFS drive from
Windows 98/ME machine, especially if the files are compressed.
The number of files inside the folder.
if "Include Subfolders In Totals" is checked, this value includes the number of files in all subfolders inside this folder.
The number of hidden files inside the folder.
The number of compressed files inside the folder. (Only relevant to NTFS drives)
The number of read only files inside the folder.
The number of system files inside the folder.
The number of subfolders inside the folder.
if "Include Subfolders In Totals" is checked, all subfolders in the hierarchy are counted.
Otherwise, only the subfolders in the first level of the hierarchy are counted.
The time and date that the folder was created.
Last modified time/date of the folder.
Be aware that the "Include Subfolders In Totals" option under the View menu
determines the way that most column values are calculated.
If this option is checked, the values are calculated for the specified folder and all its subfolders.
If this option is not checked, the values are calculated only for the specified folder, without counting the files inside its subfolders.
For example: Let's say that the root folder of your C:\ drive contains 25 files.
If the above option is not checked, the "files" column for 'C:\' will display '25' files.
If this option is checked, the "files" column for 'C:\' will display the number of files in the entire drive.
