I'm not sure if this has already been mentioned but once you are in the properties dialog you can press insert-alt-W to virtualize the current window. This will place the text of the currently active window into the virtual buffer.

Apparently there is something I am not doing correctly because I can go down to the properties of the folder, but there is nothing referring to the size of the folder.
I have no idea if this is a JAWS but or what, but when you have a folder selected, bring up the context menu, and choose properties, NVDA starts reading its way down through the General tab and hits Size, and announces it, every time.
