    Storage Space (C:Drive) as Live Tile (App)


    I'm trying to find an App that displays how much space is left on the Crive
    as a Live Tile that auto-updates as space is cleared or used.

    I'm not sure what to type into the search...
    I get C++ , cloud storage, driving conditions in India and New York, driving games.

    I hate having to jump to desktop > my computer to see how much is left.

    I re-enabled desktop gadgets but they are still are terribly ugly... and are always "group" with other info
    I dont want like cpu speed, etc.

    any suggestions?

    You don't have to go to desktop to go to "my computer", just pin "my computer" to your start screen. Just one click away too seeing this window:

    Doesn't give me the option to pin to start menu.
    Anyways I managed to find a decent Desktop Gadget
    called "Sushi's Drive Info". I guess this will do t-ill windows
    apps get better.
