    sd drive does not show space available


    Surface 3 4GB Ram, 128 GB internal storage.
    Win 10 Home ver 1709 build 16299.125

    A 64 GB sd card inserted but it does not show amount of space free etc.
    Not a big deal. I can find that info from Properties option.
    Just wonder if this is normal or I can do something about it.

    Yes, Content View will work. Thank you.
    BUT, in my old Surface Pro1, my sc drive shows as expected without resorting to Content view.
    Why my Surface 3 will not do the same ? Different sd card make ?

    Screen shot..... Surface Pro1:

    Hey davidhk,
    It's the long name (Secure Digital Storage Device) of the SD card, that pushes the (xxGB free of xxGB) of out view. If you rename it and it will show.

    Brilliant !
    Thank you. Never would have thought of "long name" issue.
