   /B  Display in bytes (default)
   /,  Use thousand separator when displaying sizes. 
   /Q:#	Quota limit, mark folders that exceed the size (#) with a "!".
           set %errorlevel% to ONE if any folders are found that
           exceed the specified size

   /*	Report on one level of subfolders (top-level folders)
