In "My computer", i would like to see how much space in gigabytes that im using for my hard drives rather than always seeing "total size" and "free space" and have to do the subtraction each time i wanna know. and i know theres a way to enable seeing a percentage, but still, not an approximate GB amount..

 

does anyone know how to do this?

Not that I am aware of, but I was showing another option ....

 

Example was Hard drives ....... It shows both -
Used Space    248 MB (62%)
Free Space    151 MB (38%)

Used Space    41 GB (9%)
Free Space    415 GB (91%)

 

ETC. ETC. All in a few seconds -

Thank You -

I got you. Just wanted to see if you knew any other way because the OP's post wasn't the clearest of them all. I like Speccy. Its the only CPU identification software that doesn't call my unlocked Phenom x6 a 2 core with triple hyperthreading, lol.

No problems -

 

I always have Speccy on my desktop, so it takes 30 seconds to fully complete the process that you want -
