I hadn't noticed that before, but diskSpace does seem to have problems 
with large disks. I have 22 GB free but it only says I have 2 GB free.

As regards file or folder size, check out "the long files" and "the 
long folders". These gives lots of different bits of info, you'll have 
to check the docs to see what is what. Sorry, I don't know of any way 
to get file version numbers.
