DirGetSize

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Returns the size in bytes of a given directory.

DirGetSize( "path" [, flag] )

Parameters

dest dir The directory path to get the size from, eg. "C:\Windows".

flag [optional] this flag determines the behaviour and result of the function,

and can be a combination of the following:

0 = (default)

1 = Extended mode is On -> returns an array that contains extended information (see Remarks).

2 = Don't get the size of files in subdirectories (recursive mode is Off)

Return Value

Success: Returns >= 0 the sizes

Failure: Returns -1 and sets @error to 1 if the path doesn't exist.

Remarks

If the script is paused then this function is paused too and will only continue when the script continues!

If you use the extended mode then the array returned from this function is a single dimension array containing the following elements:

$array[0] = Size$array[1] = Files count

$array[2] = Dirs Count Related None. There is a hex ( 31303030303030 ) reasons i love AutoIt ! #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites #3 · Posted (edited) Welcome to AutoIt! simplifying oleg's reply: $size = DirGetSize("C:\path\to\somewhere\on\your\computer", 1)
