    I have a new Macbook Pro 13" retina. I have my ssd drive and external backup drive displayed on the desktop. I want to be able to watch the free space on the sdd, so I have "Show item info" selected. However, the entire string of information is not displayed. Currently it says: "499.2...GB free" As you can see, the information in the middle has been replaced by "...". I have tried playing around with the font size but that does not fix it. Any suggestions?

    Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about - http://i.imgur.com/qhhfwH1.png

    Hmm, why not just right click and "Get Info" every once and a while?

    In the core of a black hole.
    In Finder, click on View>Show View Options>Adjust Grid spacing, see screenshot.

    Yes, I did. Read quite a few topics at Apple Discussions as well. Sometimes you just can't come up with the right search words/criteria. Thankfully some folks here are a bit more patient.

    Thanks justperry. Worked like a charm. :)
