public class  DiskSpace
{
      public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
      {
            System.out.println("Hello World!");
            
                  Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
                  String strDiskSpace = null;
                  Process p = null;
                  String strOS = System.getProperty( "os.name" );
                  try{
                  if( strOS.equals( "Windows NT" )){
                  p = rt.exec("cmd.exe /c dir c:\\" );
                  }else{
                  // Windows 95 , 98
                  p = rt.exec("command.com /c dir c:\\" );
                  }
                  InputStream inStream = p.getInputStream();
                  BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader( new InputStreamReader( inStream));
                  String strTemp;
                  while( (strTemp = reader.readLine()) != null ){
                  strDiskSpace = strTemp;
                  }
                  System.out.println( strDiskSpace.trim() );
                  StringTokenizer sToken = new StringTokenizer( strDiskSpace.trim() , " " );
                  while( sToken.hasMoreTokens()){
                  System.out.println( "Free Space : " + sToken.nextToken() );
                  }
                  p.destroy();
                  }catch( Exception e ){
                  System.out.println( e.getMessage());
                  }
      }
}

Unfortunately, the code above will only work on Windoze. On *nix systems you have to deal with local/non-local drives, mount points etc. Can get pretty complicated, but not impossible.

Algorithm is:
Read appropriate 'fstab' file to find volumes and mount points
Execute the 'df' command ('massaged' for each *nix flavor) for each mount point
Parse the output of the 'df' command

Much work, unless you only need to support Windoze, or very few flavors of *nix.
