Working with large-scale archives used to ask of the end-user unreasonable amounts of patience as discrepancies would be discovered during cross-referencing.

TreeSize provides all details of file/folder distribution in seconds with a literal right click. It meets all QA/QC requirements for number processing for reference material archives.

Kudos to the folks at JAM whose system-integration and convenience-based GUI is an example many developers could learn from.
