Data Folder Size Calculator

This routine calculates the number of bytes in a selected data folder, including any subfolders. It builds on the recursive listing functions written by Jamie Boyd. The output is printed to the history window in a human-readable format. The calculation considers only numeric waves, not text waves and not strings or variables.

The user is presented with a graphical interface from which to choose the folder of interest. Upon selecting a subfolder from the popup menu, the popup contents will change to show the subfolders of the currently selected folder. Selecting ".." will move up a folder. The user can choose to get results for only the selected data folder or to recurse through subfolders (and either giving an overall summary or the folder-by-folder breakdown). Clicking the "View / Update File Sizes Graph" will display a graph of the sorted wave sizes. As the cursor moves, the graph text updates to display the name of the wave and its file size.

To show the user interface, enter FolderBytes_GUI() on the command line.
