Q.  How can I find the amount of free (available) diskspace?

A.  Here's a function that does that:

BOOL GetDiskAvail(PULARGE_INTEGER avail) { return GetDiskFreeSpaceEx("C:\\", avail, NULL, NULL); } void ExampleUse() { ULARGE_INTEGER avail; GetDiskAvail(&avail); printf("free disk space = %dI64\n", avail.QuadPart); }
