Problem Description

How to get a files size in bytes ?

Solution

This example shows how to get a file's size in bytes by using file.exists() and file.length() method of File class.

import java.io.File;

public class Main {
   public static long getFileSize(String filename) {
      File file = new File(filename);
      if (!file.exists() || !file.isFile()) {
         System.out.println("File doesn\'t exist");
         return -1;
      }
      return file.length();
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      long size = getFileSize("c:/java.txt");
      System.out.println("Filesize in bytes: " + size);
   }
}

Result

The above code sample will produce the following result.To test this example, first create a text file 'java.txt' in 'C' drive.The size may vary depending upon the size of the file.

File size in bytes: 480

The following is another sample example of files size in java

import java.io.File;

public class FileSizeExample { 
   public static void main(String[] args) { 
      File file = new File("C:\\Users\\TutorialsPoint7\\Desktop\\abc.png");
      if(file.exists()) { 
         double bytes = file.length();
         double kilobytes = (bytes / 1024);
         double megabytes = (kilobytes / 1024);
         double gigabytes = (megabytes / 1024);
         double terabytes = (gigabytes / 1024);
         double petabytes = (terabytes / 1024);
         double exabytes = (petabytes / 1024);
         double zettabytes = (exabytes / 1024);
         double yottabytes = (zettabytes / 1024);
         
         System.out.println("bytes : " + bytes);
         System.out.println("kilobytes : " + kilobytes);
         System.out.println("megabytes : " + megabytes);
         System.out.println("gigabytes : " + gigabytes);
         System.out.println("terabytes : " + terabytes);
         System.out.println("petabytes : " + petabytes);
         System.out.println("exabytes : " + exabytes);
         System.out.println("zettabytes : " + zettabytes);
         System.out.println("yottabytes : " + yottabytes);
      } else {
         System.out.println("File does not exists!");
      }
   }
}

The above code sample will produce the following result.To test this example, first create a text file 'java.txt' in 'C' drive.The size may vary depending upon the size of the file.

bytes : 6119.0
kilobytes : 5.9755859375
