DriveSpaceFree CD / CDRW / DVD

3 posts in this topic

I'm using Autoit 3.3.8.0. When using DriveSpaceFree to get the free space of a formatted CD, DriveSpaceFree returns 0. However, Windows reports the correct free space in Explorer. I checked the function documentation for DriveSpaceFree and there is no mention of any issues with removable media drives. What am I missing?

cannondale,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

This is a known bug (see Trac #1552) which will not be fixed as no-one seems to know how Explorer finds the free space figure. ;)

If you ever find the answer I am sure the function can be amended - so over to you! ;)

I created a reusable function that returns the free space of a CD / DVD drives media. It is called

CD Freespace

and can be found on my site at the following url page:
