How to Count the Number of Files and Directory in Python

This tutorial helps you learn how to quickly and easily count the number of files and the total number of directories on specific PATH recursively in a python application.

Use OS Module

In order to count files and directory, we are taking the help of the Python OS pre-defined module, and it counts files and total number directories on a given PATH pretty quickly.

import os

Set Root Folder PATH

First, define the APP_FOLDER variable with the path indicated towards the project.

We have also created the two variables; the first one is counting the total files number and the other for calculating the total directories.

APP_FOLDER = 'C:/Positronx/Python/Scripts/'

totalFiles = 0
totalDir = 0

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.

Intro

In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
