    Disk space usage info missing - Win 10


    In Win 10, when I view all my drives in "This PC", one of the drives is missing its disk space usage info. The disk space bar is present but not the info showing the actual amount free. (screenshot attached)

    Any advice to fix this would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    This is a known issue when your drive label is too long and spans multiple lines. I don't believe there is any fix yet so a workaround is to shorten the drive label "PRIMARY HDD WDC 3TB BLACK" by right-clicking the drive->Properties.

    This a simple bug MS should have spotted in software testing and fixed.
