    Finding the free space on a hard drive

    Is there any application that comes with Windows 10, that will show the hard-drive storage usage and free space?

    I do not mean an application that will show usage and free space for each partition (disk). Such data is rather inconvenient, when one wants to know how much is left on a complete hard drive. Thanks.

    Used space and usable space of an HDD will never be completely accurate as there will be 2 or more partitions created during a normal installation of Windows and 1 or more of those 'extra' partitions will be unusable or inaccessible, won't have a drive letter which is required to allow File Explorer to have access. Some of the 'extras' are created by the manufacturer of the computer and/or by Windows. There is the built-in Disk Management of Windows but there's other programs both paid and free available on the 'net that may do a better job for what you desire.
