    Hello everyone,

    I noticed a strange thing recently. Whenever I right click a file or folder and select "get info", the file/folder size always shows as "--".

    However, if I select the file and press space, the file size is shown properly.

    Does anyone know a solution to this?

    Size can take a while to populate in the info panel for folders.

    I know that, but whether it's a big folder or a tiny file, the info never shows up. But it *does* show up when I select the file and press space.

    I too am experiencing the same issue; only seeing the file size when I select the file/hit the space bar (quick view)!
