I guess that under WIN95 and NT4.0 with large disks (free space more than 1 GB !) DISKFREE doesnt work correct.
For I have no disk with such a lot of free space, i can not check it.
If it is true, what can I do instead of DISKFREE ??

Simple, go to sysutils.pas and look for diskfree. Create a new func called Largediskfree which does the same but the result is a double or an extended.

Let me know. :-)

hallo ssite,
i think this works. but think of the range for longint : only till 2GB this will work. Therefore i have modified the function:
it returns the freesize not in bytes but in Kbytes !
thanks and regards
