Hello.  I need a VBscript (VBS) that will report back the free disk space (in gigabytes) of a UNC path I feed it.  I would execute the VBscript with a single argument and the argument would be the UNC path I would want to check free space.  The script would need to write the result, simply just the number, to the shell.  

For example this is how I would like to execute the vbscript:

myVBScheckDiskSpace.vbs \\server1\share

Here is an example result I am looking for:

17

I would be executing this VBScript at the command prompt.  I need this script in a quick hurry so I am assigning the maximum points.  I appreciate they help.

Thank You

if you have admin rights then u can do the following as well:

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("\\<machine>\C$\Scripts")
Wscript.Echo objFolder.Size/1000000000 ''-->convert to GigaBytes

While this didn't provide everything I was looking for, you gave me the missing things I needed to get this done.  Thank you.
