  • On desktop, click hard drive icon to select it.
    Go to file menu and select Get Info.

    (or simply "right-click" on hard drive icon and choose Get Info.)

    You will see "Capacity" of drive, and "Available" and "Used" space.

    Note: you may have several "hard drive icons" on a single physical drive. That is because the Mac treats each partition as a separate drive. To see all partitions, launch the "Disk Utility.app". On the left side, it will list all the partitions on each physical drive, whether mounted on the desktop or not. You can select any partition and click on "info" at top of the "Disk Utility" window to see space used and free space on that partition.
