Feature request — More storage info for disk drives

#1 Post by CabbageTree » 28.05.2024, 20:40

Hi there!

I recently found a perfect little feature that prevents me from having to use Win+E (This Computer window) to get a quick overview of all the installed drives and their free space situation:

When you click on the drive icon at the beginning of the address bar, a little palette pops up with a list of all the drives in use. There is also information about free space, which is very useful.

It would be even better if there was another number - the total capacity of each drive, with a small progress bar showing the situation as shown on the illustration below. (Red is the drive that is running out of space.) Because still the Win + E is faster for getting the quick overview of the whole free-space situation.

Thank you!

Yes, in a neat form like on your doctored image that would be helpful

But options of such feature should be implemented as being configurable

If you HOVER the mouse over that drive icon at the beginning of the ADDRESS bar, you get a flyout showing the additional "capacity" information you're looking for. It's not presented in the dropdown palette you show for ALL of the local drives when you left-click on the drive icon, but at least it shows you that drive's size which is the information you're looking for.

Same thing happens if you HOVER the mouse over ANY of the local drive icons presented in the DRIVE bar (above the ADDRESS bar).

While perhaps not quite what you're requesting nor as pretty, and only available for one drive letter at a time, but at least that data value for all local drive letters is easily seen with today's FCXE.
