Find Hard Drive Space


Dear Computer Lady,

How do you find out how big the C: drive is on a computer?




Dear Danielle,

To find the size of your C: drive, and to see how full the drive is, just follow these steps.

1. Open “My Computer” In Windows XP, just click on “Start” and then “My Computer”. In earlier versions of Windows, just double click on the “My Computer” icon on your desktop.

2. In the “My Computer” window, right click on your C: drive icon, and in the drop down list, click on “Properties”

3. The properties window for your drive will appear. This window will tell you how much used space you have on your drive, how much free space, the total capacity and then show you a nice little pie chart of your drive. The blue part of the pie is full space, the purple is free space.
