It might be handy if we could specify an allocation unit size for DIR /G. For example,

Code:
dir /a /h /s /u2 /g:8192 c:\temp\*
to assume 8K allocation units, rather than the allocation unit size of drive C:. (This feature would be useful e.g. for estimating the disk space needed to copy a directory tree to different media.)

That is what I implemented on my timedir program -- email jimrcook at
gmail.com if you're interested. I've used it just as you suggest.
