You can get the total size of selected files before uploading it to the designated server. This can be achieved by using the selected event. Refer to the following example to calculate the total file size.

<div class="control_wrapper">
    @Html.EJS().Uploader("UploadFiles").Selected("onSelect").AsyncSettings(new Syncfusion.EJ2.Inputs.UploaderAsyncSettings { SaveUrl = "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/services/api/uploadbox/Save", RemoveUrl = "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/services/api/uploadbox/Remove" }).Render()
</div>

<script>
    function onSelect(args) {
        var uploadObj = document.getElementById("UploadFiles").ej2_instances[0];
        var totalSize = 0;
        for (var i = 0; i < args.filesData.length; i++) {
            var file = args.filesData[i];
            totalSize = totalSize + file.size;
        }
        var size = uploadObj.bytesToSize(totalSize);
        alert("Total select file's size is " + size);
    }
</script>
.control_wrapper {
    max-width: 400px;
    margin: 0 auto;
}
