Hi,

I often need to know the exact number of items (files or folders) contained in a folder.

If I simply ask pathfinder to "Get Info" there is no more any information about that.

Any help?

thx

N.

ps:
- file one is pathfinder - file two is finder view

    Hi Nicolas,

    Uli from Path Finder support here!

    On the toolbar there is an eye sign - 'Quick Look'. You can also choose the file and click on this sign, so it will show you the exact number of files/folders.

    If you do not have by default, please customize your toolbar by double-clicking on it and choosing Customize toolbar. Then choose the Quick Look function. 

    Should you have anything else you’d like to address, please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    Dear Uli,
    Thank you for your message.
    Unfortunately this function only counts the elements included at depth one and does not count recursively all the elements which is the default useful behavior that we might expect (as does the finder as shown in my picture).
    Can we configure that somewhere in pathfinder?
    thx again
    Nicolas

    Unfortunately, that is all I can suggest you in this case. But I will definitely forward it as a future request for further implementation to our developers.
