FreeSpace Property

Returns the amount of free space available to a user on the specified drive or network share. Read-only.


                      object.FreeSpace 

The object is always a Drive object.

The value returned by the FreeSpace property is typically the same as that returned by the AvailableSpace property. Differences may occur between the two for computer systems that support quotas.

The following code illustrates the use of the FreeSpace property:

function ShowFreeSpace(drvPath)
{
   var fso, d, s;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   d = fso.GetDrive(fso.GetDriveName(drvPath));
   s = "Drive " + drvPath.toUpperCase( ) + " - ";
   s += d.VolumeName + "<br>";
   s += "Free Space: " + d.FreeSpace/1024 + " Kbytes";
   return(s);
}

Function ShowFreeSpace(drvPath)
   Dim fso, d, s
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set d = fso.GetDrive(fso.GetDriveName(drvPath))
   s = "Drive " & UCase(drvPath) & " - " 
   s = s & d.VolumeName   & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Free Space: " & FormatNumber(d.FreeSpace/1024, 0) 
   s = s & " Kbytes"
   ShowFreeSpace = s
End Function
