Newbie Time Capsule Question

I just bought a new Time Capsule and it seems to be working, but how can I see the Drive size or free space? For some reason I can't see it with Disk Utility nor with Activity Monitor. I can see it in Fonder, but when I look at "info" I don't see the disk size or free space? What am I missing?

I don't have one yet, but what about "airport utility"?

You can see it in Finder. Click the Time Capsule at the lower left (yours may be named differently). Then click the Time_Capsule folder at the top (again maybe different name). That will open the Time Capsule drive itself in Finder and you can see the space available at the bottom of the Finder.

Thumb resize.

Well, at first I didn't see what your pictures show, but then I figured out that I didn't have the "status bar" displayed. Once I turned that on I could see the available space. Thanks!
