GetDiskFreeSpace() API

Hi,
The GetDiskFreeSpace API takes in three variables of type ULARGE_INTEGER. Can someone tell me how I can work with these numbers after I get them? I want to compare them...

Example...
ULARGE_INTEGER var1;
ULARGE_INTEGER var2;

if(var1 > var2) {
 // Do stuff
}

But this doesn't work because the > operator isn't implemented for ULARGE_INTEGER.

Actually it's the GetDiskFreeSpaceEx() API I'm using... but you probably figured that out...

Just take out the part that has the operators defined:

unsigned __int64 test1 = var1.QuadPart;
unsigned __int64 test2 = var1.QuadPart;

if ( test1 > test2) {
}
