Windows 7: XP like Explorer status bar with disk empty space

XP like Explorer status bar with disk empty space

Windows XP File manger - Explorer had a clever status bar showing amount of empty space. In File manager tree view, when selecting folder or disk on left pane, below status bar always provided this info. Now it's visible only under computer and it doesn't feel comfortable each time to go through Computer to see if disk has enough empty space.
Is it possible to to restore status bar in Windows 7 enterprise? Now it displays only how many items there is ... which often doesn't have much on meaning at all.

Thanks!

No. But why do you even need to constantly know this information?

Thanks for a replies.
But answer to question is - copy (ctr+c) a 20 GB (2 weeks photo folder) from F: and navigate to drive E: but I can't ctr+V because I don't remember if there was enough space. Instead I must take other actions to get it know. I hope that explains why XP status bar was more comfortable. I have checked also MS library system but don't feel like it's best for my photos, music or movies. Perhaps except documents, but I don't have too many of these, because I'm a keen user of MS Excel and Outlook, both take a lot of data while keeping file number low.
