Since ZTreeWin is a XTreeGold/DOS clone, not a XTreeGold for Windows 4.0
clone, it obviously doesn't offer this feature.

There is a nice, small freeware utility for Win9x named "Folder Sizer",
which provides exactly this particular function (listing the size of each
folder/tree). You can download it from the Simtel.net Win95 disk utilities
collection by clicking on the link below.

Hope this may be helpful.
