OFFTOPIC: Why doesn't folders get sorted out by size?


I have recently realised that folders don't get arranged or sorted out by size. Only files can be sorted out by size. I know that some people would say that it would take a lot of time to calculate the size of the folders and sort them but I guess there should atleast be an option where users can turn this feature on or off. Maybe there can be something like indexing or superfetch so that it doesn't take long to calculate the size and sort the folders in that way. So what do you guys feel about it?

it is true tht windows doen't provide the option of sorting out foledrs by their size mainly due to the resons u alraedy mentioned... however it can b done by using a plugin....

it doesnt work well in vista, but in winXp it works pretty fine.
