It would a nice little improvement if the Properties Dialog for the GDB also provided the total file size of the GDB. Currently, in order to get filesize information at the GDB level, you have to go to the Parent Folder where the GDB resides and if you haven't already, alter the ArcCatalog properties to display the 'Size' when you are in Detail View. 

It would be much more convenient to be able to just get that information from the properties dialog like so:

Just want to say this would be really useful. I find it a pain having to move to ArcCatalog to find out the size especially as I use personal geodatabases to store data that I intend to say move into a stats package. Personal geodatabases have that 2GB limit so its very useful to keep an eye on its size. 

A big reason to use the Catalog window in ArcMap was to avoid file locking but it does not give us all the information we need and forces us to open ArcCatalog all the time...
