hard drive info

I have a,what i think,is a 40 gb hard drive in my computer.
I opened my 'system' window,but i don't see a reference to a hard drive.
Is there some way of determining what size this drive is?
Thanks

What operating system do you have?

If you open a Windows Explorer window you can find the properties of a drive. Find the drive in "Folders" pane. Then right click on the drive and select Properties. It will tell you more than you want to know.

You can also find additional answers to this question by using Windows Help. In fact, just about all your questions can be answered using help. Microsoft wrote the help screen to allow people to answer their own questions.

My Computer - then right click on the drive letter - properties..
Also, look in the BIOS when the machine starts up..
There are times when OEMs will create a seperate partition that holds the files for re-installing the OS, so the total size available to you will be reduced..

I was given a computer. I was able to determine the components of the system with the exception of the hard drive. I thought it strange that i couldn't find out what the harddrive specs. were.
