Hey, this is Charles Henson with Nashville Computer. In this video, I'm going to show you how to tell how much memory is available on a memory stick. The reason you may want to do this is most of these are labeled with how much memory they hold. But some of them are company branded and, or maybe they've worn off and you can't tell how much it holds anymore. So, the first thing what we'll want to do, is go ahead and insert that into the USB drive of a MacBook or a laptop, whichever we have. And we'll open up Finder or Windows Explorer. Once we have Explorer open, you'll notice that it pops up with this USB as a new drive. When you see the new drive there, on a MacBook you can double click on the mouse pad and choose Get Info. Or on a PC you'd right click and choose Properties. Once here, you'll see the Capacity and this is a two gig capacity, gigabyte and it shows how much is available for storage. Once you've done, you can close that out. you can highlight on the actual USB drive. And you'll see any files that's listed or installed on this machine or on this device. Once you see these files there, you can delete, copy, add to, whatever you need to do. So, another reason you may want to know how much memory's available on your memory stick. So that you want to copy over important files, or backup some beautiful pictures. And you want to ensure that you have enough space on the memory stick before you make those copies.
