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

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.
