I'm trying to write a little app to give FreeSpace/TotalSize for my HDs

The HDs are around 2.5, 3.5 and 3, but Total size always gives around 1.99

What am I missing? The drives are Fat32 and I'm using VB6 sp3 and scrrun.dll is 5.1.0.4615

PC is using Win98

GetDiskFreeSpaceEX API is for getting the total space of hard drive -- more than 2 GB

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function GetDiskFreeSpaceEx Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetDiskFreeSpaceExA" (ByVal lpRootPathName As String, lpFreeBytesAvailableToCaller As Currency, lpTotalNumberOfBytes As Currency, lpTotalNumberOfFreeBytes As Currency) As Long
Private Function GetFreeSpace(pDrive As String) As String
    Dim curTotalBytes As Currency
    Dim curFreeBytesToCaller As Currency
    Dim curTotalFreeBytes As Currency
     
    Call GetDiskFreeSpaceEx(pDrive, curFreeBytesToCaller, curTotalBytes, curTotalFreeBytes)
    GetFreeSpace = Format$(curTotalBytes * 10000, "###,###,###,##0")
End Function

Private Sub Form_Load()
MsgBox "Free space on drive C: is: " & GetFreeSpace("C:")
End Sub

I hate fast answers. Makes me feel dumber than I am.

It worked.

I couldn't find anything on msdn. Guess I didn't know what to search for.

You've got the points already, but what about for available space. Would using FSO work or is there the same limit?

JOK,
Just kidding about increasing more point! Anyway, did you get working for available space on your hard drive? Please let me know. Thank you very much.

Looks like its working for both.

I've used FSO with ASP and it seems to work properly.

I can give you more points if you can tell me if, in fact it does work with ASP, or why it doesn't.

JOK: I don't know anything about ASP. I really can't help you with this ASP question. Sorry.

With ASP, you can us VBScript which is a "subset" of VB. FSO is FileSystemObject, and you can use it with VB or VBScript.

Oh well. I really appreciate your help, 'tho.
