df should do it as well as sudo fdisk -l in terminal

df -h /dev/sdb

Code:
man df
Code:
man fdisk

If you are using a DE right click on the icon and then select Properties.

P.S. Please don't post the exact same topic in 2 different threads.

Or in SpaceFM or Dolphin, see the space info on the status bar at the bottom.

Mount your thumb drive and assuming you know where your thumb drive is mounted then you can use the df command to find out how much space is available.
Here you see mine (called KINGSTON)
Code:
$ df
Filesystem      1K-blocks      Used  Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1       944881044  62452152  834408668   7% /
udev                10240         0      10240   0% /dev
tmpfs              813552       744     812808   1% /run
tmpfs                5120         0       5120   0% /run/lock
tmpfs             4963700      1468    4962232   1% /run/shm
none                    4         0          4   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sdc1      1922857776 665662964 1159519244  37% /media/jdkaye/e0c208be-f070-49ce-899b-1e175b577bcc
/dev/sdb1       480719056 116072436  340227420  26% /media/jdkaye/b1bf01a8-5047-441f-bb17-8d96e217a18f
/dev/sdd1        15339552    286528   15053024   2% /media/jdkaye/KINGSTON

a simple right-click -> properties might do the trick.
but that would depend on which file manager you use.
since you haven't given us ANY information on your setup, df is your best bet because it is probably shipped with ALL linux distros.
