Count all files in a folder hierarchy
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Nov 09, '04 04:29:30PM

The shareware utility "Super Get Info" also offers a nice, easy GUI method to accomplish this, without the bugs and hassles. It allows you to specify a keyboard command that you can use after selecting a folder in the Finder, to display a Get Info window that shows the total number of files and folders inside that folder, as well as other info the Finder's Get Info doesn't show. This utility also lets you select more than one item in the Finder, and do a Get Info on it, to bring up several Get Info windows, one for each item you select, as pre- OS X Finders did, instead of the OS X Finder's method of adding up the Get Info figures for all the items you select and displaying them lumped together in one window. Super Get Info's default keyboard command is Command-Option-I, but it lets you change this to the Finder's Command-I if you wish.
