Sometimes you want to keep life simple, you have a small problem that requires a neat solution. WinSize 1.2 provides just that. If you want to know how much space a folder is taking on your hard drive, right click and select "size" and Winsize will pop up and tell you. Then it will go away again, leaving no illegal file errors, no conflicts with other programs and no hassle.

Winsize also tells you the size in two ways - the size of the actual file and the amount of space it has been allocated, so you can see at a glance how much is wasted. Installing Winsize is simple thanks to the Wizard supplied, and the right click option is added automatically for you. It takes up very little hard disc space, it tells me it has taken 294Kb of my drive but in reality has 416Kb.

There is no support available, it is a pity the author does not have a web site (at least not one I can find) to provide news of new versions and other utilities he may have created.

Freeware is often hit or miss in reliability, after all it is usually experimental and invariably amateur. WinSize is professional in quality and offers ease of use combined with lack of hassle.
