Since I'm new to the Mac world, I have to ask, Is there a way to view how much is on your hard drive?
On a PC you could open "My comp" and right click on your C-Drive and choose properties and see a pie that would show how much space was used and how much free space was left. I'd just like to check every once in a while to see if my hard drive is filling up.
Thanks!!

Moved to correct forum. Has nothing to do with IOS....


You can do the same thing from the Finder. Open the Finder, click on your MacIntosh HD and read the results in the bottom of the dialog box.
