How to get filesize including externally stored container data

I use a database with video clips stored in a container field whose contents are stored externally. Is there a simple way to obtain the size of the combined database and externally stored video clips?

 

The full database consists of the Filermaker database file, and a folder called FM_ContainerStorage inside a folder tree RC_Data_FMS/<dbaseName>/.../FM_ContainerStorage.

 

Get(Filesize) gives me (I assume) the size of the database file

 

I am hoping that, because the container field's contents are stored in a folder specific to the database, and not in arbitrary locations all over the drive, that there is a function that can access the size of this folder.
