How to find the size of a collection CS6

If I have a collection and I want to know the disk size of all the photos in it, is there a way to do this?

 

I want to figure out how large a collection is so I know how much drive space I need in order to copy it over.

 

Thanks!

    Nevermind, I realized if I 'select all' it will give me the size of the selection in the status bar at the bottom of the window.

     

    Keep in mind that a collection is just a bunch of aliases of the original files, If you move the content of a collection you also move the originals. Same is when using the delete shortcut to remove a file from a collection, it does delete the original also, hence the remove from collection button at the top that only removes the alias from the collection but leaves the original where it is
