Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56515
beeing able to see large file sizes in bytes, not _only_ in multipliers
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:49:57 EDT
Description of Problem:
There is no way to display a large file size precisely in bytes, only in
multipliers (KB, MB). In the "Show Properties" window, size is also
displayed only in multipliers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[silviu@silviu silviu]$ rpm -q nautilus
Steps to Reproduce:
Open a nautilus window and browse the files on disk.
Large files have their size displayed only in multipliers of byte.
To have a way of seeing the sizes precisely in bytes, either as an option
like "Display large file sizes in bytes", or, at least, see that in "Show
It is going to be useful as an empirical (but effective) method for
comparing, with the sweep of the eye, if two files are the same, but with
different names. If sizes are equal, chances are very high that the files
are the same.
