    Didn't see a thread on this already, so let's see if anyone has any clues.

    I was just playing around with my icons on the desktop, but at their largest possible size, I can't get the drive information (by checking "Show Item Info" in the View Options window) to fit if the labels are set to show on the bottom of the icons. It truncates it, annoying where it's display remaining space, which is exactly the wrong place. It works if I put the labels on the right side, but then I can't see the icons when I have my applications positioned where I usually do (a minor issue perhaps, but I prefer to see the icons I've created instead of the text name of the drive).

    Does anyone know if it's possible to set the icon labels to show up to the left of the icon? That would nicely solve both issues, but it's not an included option. Seems like it would be incredibly logical.

    Can't be done

    Well, after reading the whole post, I have nothing to add, sorry.

    Maybe there's a way in Terminal? Don't know.
