RE: Size of driv

Hi

Just as a matter of interest:

How does one go to a "command prompt"?

You could always try a good old DOS trick.  Go to the command prompt and
type "CHKDSK."  this is primarily a diagnostic tool--a rather useful one
with the right switches.  For several years it was eclipsed by Scandisk,
but has reemerged.  Anyhow, it always reads used and available space.

Hi Joseph,
Turning on tool tips didn't do anything.
