    Specs:
    2.5GHz i5 MBP, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, NVIDIA Geforce GT 330m/16GB iPhone 4 in a brick sized otterbox.
    Click the Apple and about this Mac->more info-> then select your HDD and it will tell you capacity and available space. Also you can open a new finder window and it will tell you at the bottom of the folder...at least that's how it is in 10.6, I'm a recent convert so I couldn't tell you how different 10.1 is compared to newer versions sorry if that doesn't help!
    Mid 2010 MBP 2.53 GHz i5, 4GB RAM || iPhone 4 16 GB iOS 4.3 (not jailbroken) || Amazon Kindle (graphite display) || HP Netbook running Win7 or Ubuntu || Various iPods
    *Macintosh, MACintosh, or M.A.C.intosh. Which one looks correct? *

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Third-party programs like Grand Perspective et al can give you a graphical display of what's taking up room on your hard drive.

    The amount of free space available on the disk is always available by looking at the bottom of any open Finder window. Be sure to keep the free space above 20GB for smooth operation.

    Any of these free utilities will show you what is taking up all of your drive's space:

    DiskInventory X (free)
    Disk Inventory X
    or
    GrandPerspective (free)
    GrandPerspective
    or
    OmniDiskSweeper (free)
    OmniDiskSweeper - Products - The Omni Group

    Are you having the problem where your hard disk is suddenly full and you don't know what it is that caused it to quickly fill up?

    if so, see:
    Out-Of-Control Cache or Log File.
