    Welcome to our forum.

    I'm don't understand (memory space label on a hard drive) Their is no such thing.

    I'm thinking you are looking for how much space on you drive is use and how much space you have left to use.

    Is that correct?

    If it is correct, just right tick on the drive and then tick on properties. It will show you space used and space not used.
    The red indicates your drive is almost full or full.

    Hey CholoBoiii,
    I think that has to do with the external drive label (Seagate Backup Plus Drive) and it's pushing it out of view.

    Welcome to TenForums @CholoBoiii

    Yes, since the Fall Creators Update (1709) the text for long disk names wrap instead of being truncated as previously. This has the unfortunate consequence you have experienced.

    Up to 1703 the behaviour was to truncate long names, this changed in 1709 to wrap the name onto a second line. Unfortunately this pushes everything down one line. The bar indicator is now on the line where the disk space would have been and the disk space has been pushed off the bottom.

    Disk spaces for select drives are not displayed under this pc (tiles)

    Right click the D: drive and choose Rename. Rename the Seagate Backup Plus Drive to just Seagate and see what happens. Then move or delete some files off of the drive, it is running out of space.

    Hey, Jack - I think OP just used the term "memory" in place of what most of us think of as "storage space" on a disk, whether it be an HDD or an SSD. Does that help resolve it for you?

    That is exactly what I was trying to find out in my post #2.
    Right tick on the drive and select properties.
