Windows 7 , DNS-323 Properties

I've been using the D-Link DNS-323 for several years as a mapped network drive under Windows XP with no problems.  From Windows XP Windows Explorer, I can right-click on the DNS drive, select Properties, and I get the pie chart and statistics showing used/unused space (just like as if it were a local drive).

I seem to have lost that ability when I switched to Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.  If I right-click on the DNS drive, I don't get a Properties option, only Collapse/Connect/Open new.  If I right-click on a volume label and select Properties, all I get is a size = 0 bytes.  It's not until I right-click an actual directory and select Properties do I get a size for the contents of the selected directory.

There's got to be a way (other than logging into the drive via Internet Explorer) to determin the used/unused space for the entire drive.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Sometimes you first need to do a connect, and then the properties should populate.

I also use the free treesize to get drive info since it does such a good job of getting directory into in a tree format.

I hope this helps !
