Lightroom: Bizarrely lacks sort by file size function

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom bizarrely lacks sort by file size function..Lightroom bizarrely lacks sort by file size function. Please add to next update!
Anyone who doesn't see the URGENT need for this function it would seem doesn't have much of a photo library, with edited/copied/duplicates to sort. Think numerous Macs/portable hard drives and the inevitable build up of backups. I'd rather have too many copies than delete an important image hence the issue.
I can sort by 'file type' or 'file extension' which to me seems redundant compared to what I am asking as the two are rarely different. I have to resort to using the finder - which not only I shouldn't have to - but that it also interferes with Lightrooms' catalogue/folder hierarchy/structure/integrity and surely the task should be a very basic feature of Lightroom. I'm not only still frustrated after each update reveals this function is still missing but stunned that it's not been there since the very beginning. Outside plugins and apps are available but why on earth is it not a basic function. Did I repeat basic function? Basic function.
