    >>> os.path.getsize("Filename" or "Path")
    Return Size in bytes

Convert TimeStamp to Date

>>> import os
>>> import datetime
>>> timestamp = os.path.getmtime("Filename" or "Path")
>>> file_date_time = datetime.fromtimestamp(timestamp)
# Convert timestamp to Date
## Type Mon Sep 30 07:06:05 2013
>>> d = date_time.strftime("%c")
print("Date:", d)	
## Type Date 09/30/13
>>> d = date_time.strftime("%x")
print("Date :", d)
## Type Hour 07:06:05
>>> d = date_time.strftime("%X")
print("Date :", d)
