How to find the size of files in a document library

Posted: June 16, 2011 in Sharepoint Designer

Wondered how you can find the size of all the files combined together that are uploaded in a particular document library?? Obviously you can find it through code. But the simple way is through the SharePoint Designer.

  1. Open the site in the designer
  2. Right-click on the document library you want to find the size of.
  3. Click on properties, which opens the pop-up to show the size of the entire document library. 🙂

    How do I get the size without designer? Is it possible?

    OOB the designer won’t show the size of the library. The best easy workaround i found is to view the library in explorer view and check the properties. This way you can see the size of the library as any normal folder.

      This did the trick. Opening the library in explorer view and the looking the property of a particular folder shows the actual file size.

    Interesting Conversation..

    As sohil said – We can add file size column and do the Total as sum against the file size column. which will give the Total file size in document library.
