Does anybody know of a program (preferably  Windows and preferably free) that lists ONLY the directories (and preferably also the sub directories) showing the SIZE occupied on the HD by each one of them without listing the files contained in them.

I have been looking for a long time for such a program without success, any help will be appreciated

I have been using a fantastic program since Windows 95 called Folder Size Shell Extension.

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,15304-order,1-page,1-c,alldownloads/description.html

Description of Folder Size Shell Extension

Note: This software is no longer supported by the vendor.

Do you want a new way to see which folders are gobbling all of your hard drive space? Folder Size Shell Extension is a free shell extension that adds a new tab to the Properties dialog that displays a folder's and drive's size. This page allows you to see the folders and sub folders sizes (in a hierarchical tree). To access the options (units, sort, etc.), a contextual menu is provided. To activate this extension, right-click on a folder (or on a drive), and click on Properties in the contextual menu. Windows Explorer displays the Properties dialog with a new tab named Size.

On the download page click on “click here” as the site is slow to render the file (dfolder.zip)

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Other good programs for this:

 

Tree Size Free from Jam Software – simple to use, see folder sizes from any starting point such as “My Documents” or a whole disk, sorts them by size, and click on folders see folders and files within them.  Easy to find what's taking the most space.

I was told there would be no math...

If you havent tried it my personal preference is Q-Dir.  Its free and it will do what you want and more.
