Calculating Folder Size In Java

The following piece of java code demonstrates how we can calculate the size of a given folder using Java Application. This uses a recursive technique. We start with a root directory, and start listing the files/folder. If a file is found, we calculate its size and sum of total size and also increase the total number of files counted so far, if it is a directory, we further do the recursion.

This program has been fully compiled and tested to find the folder size in Java.
