    Use FindFirstFile API which searches a directory for a file whose name matches the specified filename. FindFirstFile examines subdirectory names as well as filenames. If the function succeeds, the return value is a search handle used in a subsequent call to FindNextFile and calculate the size of each file and add up to find the size of the folder.
