Hi,
I'm told this will report free space on my C drive...

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:")
Set objLogicalDisk = objWMIService.Get("Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID='c:'")
Wscript.Echo objLogicalDisk.FreeSpace

...I need it spelled out to me how I can run this code from a DOS window?

Also I'm just getting into Windows scripting. is there any on-line resource you can suggest to help. Thanks!

Hi veedar,
----------

1. just open a notepad
2. paste your code

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:")
Set objLogicalDisk = objWMIService.Get("Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID='c:'")
Wscript.Echo objLogicalDisk.FreeSpace

3. save it to c as test.vbs
4. open a command prompt
5. type c:\test.vbs
6. hit enter

it will popup the box with free space

personally i like the scripting guy columns on technet
