Dear Colleagues,

 

Is there a way to check the size of a folder that was shared with me?  It would be good to know the folder size before syncing, especially if this is a folder with huge size media files.

 

Thanks.

You can see the file size in the document details panel

No, it does not show this information (in our case.  All users confirm):

Does it require additional configuration on Office 365 level?

 

Sorry, I missed the "folder" part...there is not way to get the size of the folder, only of individual files

This limitation persists even 2 years later.  That is really quite ridiculous.  Why can't MS show folder size information for shared folders.  Please consider !
