Customize what is displayed in the Folder panel’s header by Control (Mac), right mouse (Win) -clicking it and choosing between Disk Space, Photo Count, Status or None. In addition, clicking the Plus icon (on the Folder panel header ) provides three choice for displaying the Root folder’s path (the Root folder refers to the top most parent folder(s) in the panel). Choose from Folder Name Only, the Path from Volume or Both. (Due to limited space, I typically choose to only display the Folder Name.) Finally, Lightroom provides a hint as to the available disk space on a  drive by displaying a color-coded Disk icon in the Folder panel’s header. Green means that you have a significant amount of free space, yellow hints that the space is becoming limited and red warns that the drive almost full (of course this is all relative). When the Header of a drive is gray, the drive is off-line.
