    Any Windows tool to give me a file count in a folder including subfolders?

    Any Windows 7 tool to give me a file count in a folder including subfolders?

    Or any Microsoft tool?

    Thanks.

    FolderReport hasn't been updated in a number of years and didn't say it was designed for Windows 7.

    WinDirStat is newer, update wise, and also says it is designed to run on Windows 7. And as always I scanned with MSE and VirusTotal and it passed both scans.

    Directory Opus is considered by some to be THE file manager but a bit expensive. Personally would not be without it and very configurable. One can download a copy and test for 60 days. http://www.gpsoft.com.au/dscripts/download.asp

    OR - the minimalist solution (no installation required):

    Open a CMD window in the parent folder and type:
    dir *.* /w /s
    and hit enter
    A list of all the files will go flying by, and at the end you will get a summary. eg:

    Total Files Listed:
    1650 File(s) 3,961,434,782 bytes
    29 Dir(s) 764,189,962,240 bytes free

    Why not right-click the folder in Explorer and select properties. The folder and file count will show up once Explorer finishes counting them.
