Folder Size

Folder Size, is an add on for Windows Explorer. When we go to Windows Explorer's detail view, the "Size" column show size of files but not the size of folders, and that 's what i was looking for.

I thought of of writing a shell extension myself, but before that I searched if something similar existed and I found this one back in 2006. and since then I have been in using it. 

In between I had uninstall it for because it's background service which keeps calculating the size of fodler was consuming my CPU a lot. but the newer version but the latest version 2.5  rocks. it has overcome all those performance issue.  Kudos to author.

FreeFileSync :File/Folder comparison synchronization tool

FreeFileSync is an open source and free tool hosted on source forge. 
It's very useful for those who have multiple machines, 
I have got two laptops, two windows desktops and one Mac machine in office.

and all machines have one folder in common "Software" 
I always want to have these folders in synch, If I download a new software on my machine
and save it to software folder, i want it to be available on machin2  to machine 5.
