How to change HDD icon details on desktop
is it possible to change the details of my HDD icon on the desktop?
I need just 'Free Space' info, and need to get rid of Total hdd size.
Here is the image to make it more clear:

I don't think so. There's only one checkbox to provide both bits of info. If there isn't a defaults write command to set some parameter in Terminal, then that's just the way it is.
If you just want the free space info readily to hand, then try Showing the Status bar at the bottom of the Finder windows. That will display the free space and not the volume size.

Just click on the Desktop and in the finder menu item 'view' and go to the item 'sort-by' and select 'none'. Also while still in the finder's 'View' item "Show View Options' and uncheck 'Show Item Info'.

Status bar at the bottom of the Finder window showing Free Space is a handy option.
Thanks for that.
