Package test results have failed.

This package was submitted prior to moderation and has not been approved. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

Folder Size FREEWARE will analyze your hard drives and display the file and folder sizes so that you can easily check the distribution of your disk space. The application will display the sizes of the folders and files and also the percentage of the total disk size that they occupy. The neat report can be sorted in order to identify the largest folders and the largest files. You can easily figure out which files or folders have filled up your drive space as Folder Size will also scan the sizes of all the subfolders. The application can scan your entire hard drive in minutes due to its optimized scan algorithms and list details on the tree size. The progressive scan will let you continue the scan from the point of interruption.
Besides scanning an entire hard drive Folder Size can also scan a single folder in order to save time.

To install Folder Size, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install folder_size

To upgrade Folder Size, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
