Ok, so first official question to you folks.
I've reinstalled my OS, formatted, the whole shibang, just a few days ago, and have things back the way i want them.

I've still 1 small annoyance. I want to be able to look in my computer, and be able to tell at a glance how much space i use on each drive, not just the free space remaining.... But no such column exists...

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

PS I'm not that bad with the registry, and know my way around windows generally... So skip some of the lesser details if you wish.

Ok, i agree that shouldnt be changed, but let's entertain the notion, for a moment, that i wanted to do it anyway, because i have full backups and all, how would i go about trying to do this?

heheheh not gonna happen.....there are very few people qualified to modify the windows schema CORRECTLY...and i can promise you that they wouldn't post the instructions on a forum....it's not safe...and 9 times out of ten...it doesn't work (at least...doesn't give the desired effects)
