I believe what I was proposing was an addition to functionality, not a replacement of something that is increasingly becoming less meaningful.

Theres nothing wrong with my dir structures, I just personally would prefer to be able to see at a glance the number of MB a dir is rather than how many KB it is.
Everything takes up more room as time goes on, the avg game fully installed is in excess of 1,500,000KB now (which is far more simply described as 1,500MB ?)

If you WANT precision, it's just a simple: Alt+K, S,
If you WANT basic overview of the amount of data in a (sub)dir, you want MB or even GB, and since a change is being done, why not throw in GB and TB too ...

My work has network drives running into multiple TerraBytes, thats 1,000,000,000KB in KB speak.
