Open Computer and it will show you all your drives and tell you how much is free and how much is total. Easy to see the free and used space. This is probably the best way, although there are other was (File Explorer can also be used)

The way I showed you gives you free and total.   Percent free is free divided by total.

If you want to see it on the tool, try xPlorer2 (Zabkat). That shows you Percent Free as well.
