Some drives on desktop don't show free space
Authored by: Fillman on Aug 30, '06 01:23:51PM

A quicker way to refresh the desktop is to ctrl option click on the finder icon in the Dock. Select the relaunch sub menu that appears and all is refreshed.

I've also noticed that if you run as a non-admin user, the primary hard disk does not show available space. Log in again as Admin and the number appears again. This makes sense since general users should not know about admin space, but it's still a pain.
