    I noticed that, unlike Snow Leopard, the Finder window in Lion doesn't show how much free space is left on my Time Capsule. I tried Get Info, and that didn't help, either. Is there a way to determine this, short of looking at the Time Capsule through a Snow Leopard or Windows PC?

    My Available space is listed if I go into Time Machine Preferences.

    Did you turn on the status bar in Finder? Works in mine.

    Thanks. That did it for me.

    FYI, one can hide or show the "status bar" from the View menu in Finder.

    Also, the Get Info function does work to find out the size of items inside the Data folder on your time capsule. However, it takes time for that data to be calculated. So be patient.
