Use the diskSpace function to determine whether there is enough free space to complete an action (such as downloading data).

Value:

The diskSpace function returns an integer.

Comments:

The value returned by the diskSpace function is in bytes. To convert to kilobytes (K), divide the return value by 1024. To convert to megabytes (M), divide by 1024^2. To convert to gigabytes (G), divide by 1024^3:

function humanReadableDiskSpace theUnits

set the caseSensitive to false

switch char 1 of theUnits

case "k"

return the diskSpace div 1024

break

case "m"

return the diskSpace div (1024^2)

break

case "g"

return the diskSpace div (1024^3)

break

default

return the diskSpace

break

end switch

end humanReadableDiskSpace
