    Is there a way to determine the total size of several selected files in Finder. What I would like to do is selected some files for copying and be able to determine what the total size of all the files are; so I don't over exceed the capacity of my USB stick. I don't want to select several files and then when I go to paste them onto my USB stick; to be told that I am over capacity!

    Select the files and hit Command-Option-I or hold down Option when selecting Get Info. Size in the Get Info window should display the combined size.

    By the way, this question should be asked in the OS X forum instead.

    I believe when you do that, the menu item changes to Show Inspector
