In the Mac Server OS X v. 10.5.8, how can I determine how much hard drive space is being used by the Devices at the top of the left hand column and the particular folders within these volumes (see the attached screenshot).

In Windows computers this would be done simply by right clicking on the volumes or folders and then left clicking on properties.

How can this be done on a Mac?

Please provide detailed instructions, since I don't know much about Macs.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Similar to a Windows OS, you may right click a volume or folder and select Get Info.

I prefer to use an application like DiskInventoryX, which will show you, visually, the size of every sub-directory on a volume, color-code by file-type, and allows for file management in a graphical display.

Also if you want extensive details of what's using up all the space on your disk volumes, try WhatSize::
