  • The best option to check the Size of file and folder in ADLS Gen2 is Storage Explorer.

     Path - Get Properties, which can be used to fetch properties of files stored in ADLS Gen2. You may also refer to the suggestion mentioned in the SO thread.

    If you want a programmatic way to do this, Data Lake Store provides a WebHDFS compliant API that can list several folder attributes: GETCONTENTSUMMARY. You can see more details here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/datalakestore/webhdfs-filesystem-apis.

    Hope this helps!
