If you mean how much space is being taken up, go to Computer, right click the disk and select properties.

If you mean Disk usage, type "resource monitor" without quotes into your start menu search, click it, and in the overview tab, find Disk. This is not a circle graph, but I wouldn't know why you would want a circle graph for something like this.

Hope this helps

You can try this free software called WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics.
This wont show you disk usage in circles but in rectangular blocks.

Frequent unresponsiveness, 100% hardware disk usage, 0% software usage
