I Think may be better put the equivalent size columns KB, MB, GB at the end.
For me with column bytes is enough

You can hide the columns you don't want to see by selecting 'View -> Choose columns' from the menu.

Simply perfect.

In the same orientation may be : controlled the amount wasted of RAM memory by an exe or similar.

I see your script for controlling the percentaje task.  :-*

Size Matters indeed. ;)  Nice work, skwire. 

For lists I will now use Size Matters to monitor specific files and TreeSize Free to monitor large directories.

@sajman99:  Thanks for the kind words.   :D
@Contro: Not yet.  I'll get to it when I finish up a couple of other Coding Snacks.

mentioned on ghacks today: http://www.ghacks.ne...ors-a-list-of-files/

The application currently has a few shortcomings. It for instance does not have an option to react on file size changes. This could be something as simple as playing an alarm sound to advanced features like running external programs.

Size Matters does not update the list with new files that are added in folders that have been previously added to the program. This makes it impossible to monitor a download folder for instance, as the program fails to add the new files to the list.

This option could be combined with the ability to set rules for folders, like setting a maximum size limit for a folder, again with alarms that go off if the limit is reached.

Well, crap, that's what the limit column was going to be for when I got around to adding the functionality for it.

It seems funny how much effort one can produce for a one liner in cygwin:
ls -s -1 --block-size=<maxAllowedSize> <filenames> | gawk -- '$1>1'
