At times, you need to find out the disk space in total (including used space & free space) on your computer HDD or SSD. The common way to check what is taking up space on my SSD is via Windows Explorer. It's easy but inaccurate to check the total hard drive capacity on a hard drive on which a single partition is created. One partition size equals one hard disk size. However, not for the case that there is unallocated space except for one partition/volume because Windows Explorer won't display the amount taken by unallocated space.

In addition, when there are multiple partitions or volumes on a hard disk, there is no way for you to check its total size in Windows Explorer unless you calculate the result by yourself. So, how to check the total hard drive size in Windows 10, 8.1, 8, or 7 in a visible way without calculation? We gathered three ways for you.
