    To check how much space I have used and what's left on Windows all I have to do is right click on "C:\" and hit "Proprieties" and it gives me that circle thingy and tells me what is free (pink) and what's used (blue)

    How can I do this on my MacBook?

    At the bottom of any finder window, it will say how much space is left on the drive you are in.

    OR

    right mouse click on your hard drive and choose "get info"

    Besides at the bottom of a finder window, you can go into Activity Monitor and click on "Disk Usage".

    For more detailed info you can also right-click (or cmd-click) on the Macintosh HD in finder and select "Get Info".

    alternatively, in the "view options" in the finder, checking "show item info" will show you how much space there is and how much is available on your hard drive icon. the only catch is that the number isn't always up to date.

    It's up-to-date from when the Finder was launched. So if your laptop goes to sleep, Finder will be re-launched and the figure adjusted.

    Apple + I on the disk is the quickest way I find.
