AvailableSpace Property

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


                      object.AvailableSpace 

The object is always a Drive object.

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

The following code illustrates the use of the AvailableSpace property:

function ShowAvailableSpace(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 += "Available Space: " + d.AvailableSpace/1024 + " Kbytes";
   return(s);
}

Function ShowAvailableSpace(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 & "Available Space: " & FormatNumber(d.AvailableSpace/1024, 0) 
   s = s & " Kbytes"
   ShowAvailableSpace = s
End Function
