You can use du command to see the folder size in LINUX including subfolders.:

With du

du -h # including subfolders (-h means human readable format in MB, GB or TB)

If you want to exclude subfolders, type:

du -h –max-depth=1


If you want to know a specific folders size (easy to remember) type:

du -sh /home/someforlder

Where -h stands for human-readable & -s is to summerize the results.
