    Open it up and read the info off the hard drive is the easiest way. While you are at it you can blow out the accumulated dust.

    If you have TWP running, you can just hit the info link and all your drive info will be toward the bottom.

    Two ways:

    1: See in System Information how much recording time is available. The number of hours in Basic is about equal (a bit more actually) to the nominal HDD capacity.

    2: Look on the model label on the back. The last 3 digits are the nominal capacity of the original HDD, if it is still stock. Mine is a TCD240080, which came with an 80GB drive.
