( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
First, a couple of questions:
  • How accurate do you need to be? (this method can give a slightly different number for free space than right-clicking and selecting properties)
  • Can you map a drive to the share before checking, and disconnect after?
  • Is Windows Script Host installed?

If the answer to these questions are "99% is good enough","yes" and "yes", try this:

#!perl use warnings; use strict; use Win32::OLE; my $fs = Win32::OLE->CreateObject('Scripting.FileSystemObject'); my $d = $fs->GetDrive('g:'); print $d->{TotalSize}, " total\n"; print $d->{FreeSpace}, " free\n"; print $d->{AvailableSpace}, " available\n"; print $d->{TotalSize} - $d->{FreeSpace}, " used\n"; __END__ Output on my system, with G: mapped to a Samba share: 19447939072 total 16677601280 free 16677601280 available 2770337792 used
where AvailableSpace is the space available to you and FreeSpace is total free space.

Note - this code requires you already have the drive mapped before you try it.

Update: added closing </ul> tag

Update 2: Please read BrowserUK's caveat below!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
