Nice Nice, lots of useful info. Requests: fixed-width font; horizontal scrolling for viewing text files with long lines; Taller text lines so don't cut off the descenders of characters like p, q, g. Mount and view partitions;

Properties>size>4096 All folders say size is 4096, is this a bug? How do I determine the size of a folder?
