If you think you’re close to filling up your Mac’s hard drive, it may be a good time to look and see how much storage you have left so you can budget for a new drive. In this tutorial we will be showing you how to view your available hard drive space in OS X Lion. This tutorial does not require any additional software or plugins.
Viewing Available Hard Drive Space
