Show The Size Of A Directory Using ASP

This is an example of using the FileSystemObject to determine the total size of all files in a directory and any sub directories in it. This is handy because sometimes you might want to know just how big your web site is. Replace "somedirectory" with your directory name. If you know the physical path you can replace Server.MapPath("/somedirectory") with the actual path like so.

Here's the catch.
If you are using NT the directories you run this on must have the correct permissions. Basically the directories and all subdirectories within it all need "read" permissions from the anonymous account or you will get a permission denied error.

Set MyFileSize = Server.CreateObject ("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
MyPath = Server.MapPath("/somedirectory")
Set MyFolder = MyFileSize.GetFolder(MyPath)

<p><% =MyPath %> is <% =MyFolder.Size %> bytes</p>

The results might look something like this.

E:\Inetpub\virtuals\somesite\somedirectory is 47331 bytes
