DirUse Remarks

Using DirUse to Determine Compressed File Size

The parameter to use for compressed directories and files is /c, which causes DirUse to display the actual size of a compressed file or directory instead of apparent uncompressed size. For example, if your D drive is an NTFS volume, and you want to determine the disk space used (in megabytes) and the number of files in each directory, at the command line, type:

diruse /s /m /c d:

To see compression information for a file, open Windows Explorer, right-click the file, and then click Properties.
