    The get info feature used to show the # of items in a given folder in OS9. What happened to that in Tiger? I transfer large amounts of data and # of items helps me confirm that all files have been copied. Is there an option I am not seeing?:mad:

    It says number of 'items' at the bottom of each Finder window. Is this any help?

    Turning on "show item info" will also show you how many items are in a given folder

    There's a finder option to show the number of items in a folder along with its name.

    They removed that feature in Tiger.
    I have resorted to using CalculateSizeCM. Its a contextual plugin, but it might suit you for your needs.

    Is this what you mean?

    View > Show Status Bar
    Be sure to turn off tab view on the window first. ;)
