    Am I missing something? I still can't sort search results by exact file size. This has been missing since Tiger and I don't get it. I end up using a 3rd party (EasyFind) search tool to sort files by size. Aggravating.

    just been looking at this as its been missing for so long

    put your search results into list view
    right click on the headers, there is now an option to add size

    Yes, there may be an option, but:

    - You *cannot* resize the columns.

    So in my case I need to resize Finder to even see the sizes that aren't trunc'd.


    *sigh*

    And in that case you can barely gauge what size something is.. only an estimation, i.e.: from 10KB to 1MB..

    it allows me to resize the columns, click in the header and drag the width of them
