How do you retrieve information for multiple Windows XP disk drives?
You can obtain detailed information about the amount of available and used space on your Windows XP disk by right-clicking any drive icon in My Computer and selecting Properties. You get a fancy pie chart display that represents the disk information graphically, which makes it easy to quickly analyze your hard disk usage.
If you have multiple drives, performing this operation on each one can take quite a bit of time. Windows XP can provide the same type of pie chart display for all your drives in one tabbed dialog box.
- Open My Computer
- Hold down [Ctrl] and select each one of the drive icons
- Right-click the last one and select Properties.
The resulting dialog box will have a tab containing a pie chart for each drive. You can use this technique with removable as well as floppy disk drives.
