You don't find free space on folders.  Free space exists on Disks.  I don't know the powershell, way since I've always just used the command line.

You can use the built in fsutil with psexec
psexec \\Computer fsutil volume diskfree c:

You can also use wmic
wmic /node:"%COMPUTERNAME%" LogicalDisk Where DriveType="3" Get DeviceID,FreeSpace

If you have multiple disks, you can use find to isolate the disk.
wmic /node:"%COMPUTERNAME%" LogicalDisk Where DriveType="3" Get DeviceID,FreeSpace|find /I "c:"
