How Much Disk Spaced Used?

Does anyone know how I can figure out how much disk space I have used on my TiVo HD? I'm getting a new Premiere 4 this week and need to decide if I need to upgrade the disk. Ordinarily I might have bought the Premiere XL4 but they have a deal going on until tomorrow for the regular Premiere 4, a TiVo Streamer and a TiVo MoCa all for $300 (essentially, the Streamer is free). I've been waiting for a good deal on a 4 tuner TiVo and it seems like this is the one. The Premiere 4 has a 500 gb drive (75 hours HD recording time).

Thanks,
Jack

A Tivo HD (TCD652160) originally, which has not been upgraded, has a 160 gb drive which holds about 20 HD hrs of record time.
Premiere 4 has a 500gb drive for 75 HD hrs.
XL4 has a 2 tb for over 300 HD hrs.

Choose each individual recording and press info from the program description screen and add up all of the GB's used.

Any new Premiere is going to have at least 3x the capacity of your TiVoHD.

You can download KMTTG, after its downloaded the playlist, you can then click on "Disk Usage" and it will tell you the total disk space used as well as total play time.

Another program (Windows only)
TiVoPlayList

Or my favorite requires some computer skills
