How to Calculate the File Size of a Website


A website is comprised of folders, code files and images. To calculate the file size of a website, the user must have access to the all of the folders and files for the site. For example, the user must be able to access the website through the file system on the web server or must be able to copy the folders and files from the web server onto a local machine. Once access to the folders and files associated with the website is obtained, calculating the size of the website is very simple.

  • Log onto the web server or computer with local access to a version of the website. The user will need to access the website files through the file system versus over the internet to calculate the size of the site.

  • Right-click the Windows "Start" button, then select "Explore" to open Windows Explorer.

  • Navigate to the top-level folder containing the website files and images.

  • Right-click on the top-level folder.

  • Select "Properties" from the context menu. The user may also click ALT + Enter to reveal the context "Properties" option.

  • Click the "General" tab, if needed. The two values of "Size" and "Size on Disk" will indicate the size of all files in the top-level folder of the website.
