folder size including subfolders Wed Jul 24, 2019 7:49 am • by dorindon
Hello, I am trying to write a rule which would cause all dropbox parent folders less than 100 MB in size to have the tag purple.
My rule basically causes all my parent folders turn up purple because most of my dropbox parent folders only contain multiple subfolders, which in turn contain many files.
How would I specify that I want a folder to be tagged purple when it is more than 100 MB, including all contents, ie all sub folders and their contents, files, etc
thank you

Are you using Hazel's "SIze" attribute or something else? "Size" should include the size of all subfolders/files.

For example, I have a folder containing 200 GB of files and folders, and Hazel reports the size as less than 100 MB (my size cutoff in my rule).
I want to tag folders containing less than 100 MG as purple color.
thank you

What does Finder show for the size? Can you send a screenshot of Hazel's preview, showing what it sees as the size?
