This Geeklet shows an exact directory (folder) size in B, KB, MB, GB, or TB. If the folder is empty, it will display "Empty".

I was frustrated with other methods showing Base 2 notation and the allocated size of files and folders, not the actual accurate byte-size.

This script also omits hidden files (ie: DS_Store & Icon) so when you delete the contents of a directory, the byte size is zero.

Using a Base 10 notation (ie: 1 kB = 1000 bytes), which is the same as Finder in Mac OS X.


  1. Customise this script by simply changing the directory you would like to monitor the size of.
