Hi guys,

I read somewhere how to get finder to display your hard disk space at the bottom of the finder window, but I can't for the life of me remember where.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, so that I can have this info displayed at the bottom of the window, I'd really appreciate it.

Also, I've noticed that when people have posted pictures of their desktops, they have icons showing their relevant hard disks along with the available space underneath the icon... Any ideas how I get this displayed under the icon?

I know that on the important scale, it's pretty low on the list, but it's something that I saw how to do somewhere but can't remember where.

MTIA.

This will show how much HD space is left.

In Finder: Click View > Show Status Bar.

Brilliant, thank you!

I've discovered how to do my other point too...

Right click on the icon > Show View Options > Show Icon Info
