How to measure storage consumption?

Post by ajax » 03 Feb 2015, 14:12

I'm using SystemRescueCD to troubleshoot a Windows (NTFS) file system and I'd like to know if there is a way to determine the amount of file system storage that is consumed by all of the files contained in a directory to include all sub-directories contained therein?
