    Determining the Amount of Free Space on a Drive

    Document ID: IR10072
    The information in this article applies to:
    • AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Professional Edition

    SUMMARY

    This article describes how to determine if the user has a sufficient amount of free space on their system.

    DISCUSSION

    When installing software to a user's system, it is useful to ensure that the user's system has enough free space on their hard drive to accommodate the software.

    To accomplish this in AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0, insert the following code into any event in your application:

    --space required, in megabytes

    space_required = 253



    --get free space on the user's system (c:\ drive)

    space_available = Drive.GetFreeSpace("C:");



    --compare free space available to free space required

    if space_required > space_available then

    Dialog.Message("","You are "..(space_required - space_available).." MB short");

    else

    Dialog.Message("","You have "..(space_available - space_required).." MB more than you need");

    end
    Please note that the variable space_required must be set by you. 253 is an arbitrary number.
