I have been very unhappy with the OP problem as well. A basic Windows function (that even mac has). MS really lit a match in the dynamite shed on this one. Solution: install the open source Windows Classic Explorer:
Welcome to Classic Shell
You will get your classic status bar back , can hide the oversized (and frustratingly unhelpful) Details Pane, and be happy with Windows again. It shows remaining disk size as well as the sum of the size of folder contents/selected files/folders - even in the Recycle Bin. Restores what MS tried to rob us of. I am running it on Win 7 64-bit.
They also have a classic start menu, but I am fine with the Win 7 start menu so I unchecked it during the install.
Now if they only had a donate link! (I am not affiliated with them at all).
Regards and Happy New Year.
I am not affiliated with the author in any way but I do highly encourage people do donate whatever you can, the author has remedied a great inconvenience for us all. Cheers!
