    Go to Finder>View>View Options. Then, tick the box that says 'show item info'. Note that this affects other files on the desktop as well. For example, it will say what dimensions a picture is and how many files are in a folder.

    Click on the desktop for hard drive and items on the desktop (or in the finder window for folders). Then View>Show View Options, check Show Item Info.
