Windows 7: Drive capacity text not showing

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Drive capacity text not showing

I can't see how much HD space I have anymore. As you can see, there's nothing below the drive letters.

Why is that?

Do you have Tiles selected under View in folder options?

Try holding down the CTRL button on your keyboard and scrolling up and down with your mouse wheel. This will cycle between the various sizes and styles of icons in Windows Explorer.
