Java and Drive Space

Is there anyway to find out the size of a disk and free space on the drive?

I have seen some examples of how to do this by creating temp files on the drive ( I though this was a bit bad )
Does anyone know if it can be done?

Thanks

You could execute a dir command (windows) and parse the output

You could

Runtime.getRuntime().exec.("cmd.exe /C dir");

Restriction: an empty disk returns an error message so the parsing gets complex.
I wonder why getenv() finally is incorporated into JAVA 5 and something universal like this is not.
;JOOP!

is there not a universal way of checking, because my application is going to be run over several platforms ( not just windows )

This indicates it IS possible (but maybe not that straightforward ;°)
