I have Windows 7 installed on my computer. What can I click that will tell me how many gigabytes of hard drive space that I have? Thank you. Murrar

Open Windows Explorer. Open the Computer Icon. In Computer you'll see each drive with a small percentage bar of how much disk space is being used as well as a description of how much is free and the total disk space. If you're wanting additional information right-click the drive and click Properties. Below is an example of what this looks like:

To Union Thug: I did what you said and the screen said that my hard drive (C Drive) capacity is 221 GB. Does that make sense? I did not think I had that much hard drive space. Murrar

If that's what it says, that's what it is.

@Murrar:

What Allan said. How big is the actual hard drive? Is it partitioned? Does it have a recovery console? Too many variables to just blindly tell you "Yeah, that makes sense"

You need to start using Google to research before posting generic questions here.

Just my .02 cents.
