    There is a popular Windows utility called TreeSize Pro that can be used to show the exact disk usage by folder (and sub folder) among many other things.

    I want to use this to look at my server, and have nearly completed the task, but am stuck due to not knowing how to change the default login directory for the root account.

    I am using ExpanDrive to login using my SFTP details using the root account. In FileZilla after logging in I have to move to one directory higher to see the root. I am unable to do this using ExpanDrive and need to change the directory I initially login with.

    Does anyone know how to do this for the root account?

    Hello :)

    I have not used that application, but have you considered using SSH to find this information? There is a guide on this at:

    Thank you.
