what is the shell command to....
 
...Find out how much data is in one folder? I am looking to find out how much data I have on the machine and I'd like to find out how mcuh data is in a folder, and have the number be a recursive sum of all subfolders within the target folder. Any help?

Thanks,
Matt

Perhaps you are looking for the du command.
