Ubuntu – Nautilus statusbar visibilty – Quickly check free space


In prior versions, I would open Nautilus and check the statusbar, which would tell me how much free space there is. Now, the statusbar isn't shown by default. I know you can enable it from the View menu, but 99% of users won't do that (and I'd rather not do that, if possible). So, is there some new recommended way to keep tabs on hard drive usage? Or is there maybe some other method that I should have been using in the past but never noticed?

Best Answer

There are lots of ways to find out how much hard disk space is available.

or a number of other utilities.

But I don't think any of them are going to be as simple as checking the status bar in a Nautilus window.
