"While Windows Explorer doesn't allow to sort files by folder size, all is not lost.

Meet Folder Size Browser, a nifty little utility that does what it says on the tin.

i can't vouch for Vista but since it works in Windows 7, it should do so in Vista.

Folder Size Browser is free and portable."

"Total commander has this built in

menu Configuration -> Options, go to Display settings and for Sorting Directories select ""Like files""
make sure you are showing full info (menu Show -> Full)
click on Size column button (default sorts from biggest to smallest, click again to reverse it)
press Alt+Shift+Enter and wait for the directories to be scanned, depending on the size it could take a while

Result will be all directories showing cumulative size of all the files in them (including in all subdirectories)"
