Microsoft® Visual Basic® Scripting Edition
FreeSpace Property
 Language Reference 
Version 3 

See Also                  Applies To

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

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:

Sub ShowFreeSpace(drvPath)
    Dim fs, d, s
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set d = fs.GetDrive(fs.GetDriveName(drvPath))
    s = "Drive " & UCase(drvPath) & " - " 
    s = s & d.VolumeName  & vbCrLf
    s = s & "Free Space: " & FormatNumber(d.FreeSpace/1024, 0) 
    s = s & " Kbytes"
    MsgBox s
End Sub
