In Windows 7 the Computer area has drives sorted by Type which list the size remaining and a progress bar to represent the size currently in use.

Is there a way to customize Ubuntu 11.04 to do the same? (No previous modifications made)

enter image description here

I want to style the Computer section to look like Windows 7, not use what's already there.

Never used Windows 7 - can you add a screenshot of what you are talking about? –  fossfreedom Aug 14 '11 at 22:32

@fossfreedom yes. Natty Narwhal's File Browser. –  Brian Graham Aug 14 '11 at 23:03

Open System monitor and click on File system tab you will see all the Drive info there like this:

And when you open any directory under home directory you will see some info on the status bar. like this: enter image description here

Thank you, but no. I want to style the Computer section to look like Windows 7, not use what's already there. –  Brian Graham Aug 14 '11 at 21:48

Nautilus is entirely free software. You can customize it any way you wish. But to be honest, if you're using the Computer section of Nautilus very frequently, I think you should reexamine the way you work with Ubuntu. I had completely forgotten that it even existed and I believe it'll go away or at least be less accessible in 11.10.
