10.6: Easily view available disk space
Authored by: leamanc on Oct 26, '09 02:54:47PM

Wrong. This hint does work in 10.5 with QuickLook. Typing this from a 12" PowerBook G4 running 10.5.8, and the "QuickLook on hard drive" functionality is identical to my 17" MacBook Pro running 10.6.1.

This hint doesn't work for me on 10.5.8 for drive icons on the Desktop. It does work if the drive is selected in the sidebar or in the Volumes folder. Could the hint be about desktop drive icons?

10.6: Easily view available disk space

I think you're right, I just assumed it was about desktop items but I guess it doesn't actually say that. However, the hint is given for the purpose of viewing available disk space, and if you have a finder window open then you most likely do not need quick look to accomplish this since the space shows up in the windows (assuming the window is showing a folder on the drive in question.) I know that has already been mentioned here many times, I am just using this to support the argument that the hint is probably about desktop icons.
