Unfortunately, I am not getting flawless performance. FolMon only and constantly shows "28" while the mouse-hover-over-folder keeps updating continuously.
Will FolMon display the same as the Windows' hover-mouse-over-folder function? Will it show all MBs/GBs included in the folder and subfolders?
Currently it's not recursive, as that wasn't its original intention, but it can be with the change of a parameter.
I'll make it an option, however I'm not sure what kind of impact it'll have on its resource usage - hopefully not too much since it's just asking the system for the same info you get with the mouse-over, (I think).
I might have to tweak the filesystem notification to take the sub-directories into account also, (for the statusbar update).
A few notes:
- I'll change the size field so it scales the number, eg. KB, MB, and GB
- Making it recursive will slow down it's update interval, which is currently fixed at 1000ms - you get the same thing when Windows has to parse a large filetree for statistics.
- I'll add a slider to set update interval, (1-60 seconds), however note that this is an interval between the termination of one scan to the start of the next - eg. if the scan takes 15 seconds to complete and the update interval is set to 45 seconds then the effective update interval, (time between GUI updates), is 60 seconds.
- Statusbar will currently only display the last file created in the initial path - I can fix that later by monitoring all filesystem changes rather than just the initial folder, (though I do wonder what kind of impact that will incur), or I can just disable the statusbar for recursive monitoring.
Hopefully I can do this in a day or two, possibly something like this:
