One of my biggest annoyances with Win 8 is I can't quickly see the free disk space on my multiple drives with multiple partitions. I know I can use My Computer, but that's lame and takes too much time. I like just seeing free disk space at the bottom of my explorer. Why did ms remove this feature?
Edit: testing out Win 8, but still don't see any improvements over Win 7. Doesn't boot faster, doesn't increase game fps, not sure what the hoopla is about?
