There isn't any screen that will show you what you're looking for.

The only place is in the diagnostic menu, but it isn't worth trying to get into that for this.

Record about 5 hours of HD shows and you might see you've used 2%, or still have 98% free being shown on the playlist screen. If it shows 4% or more, then you're not on the eSATA, but the internal drive.
