float disk_free_space ( string directory )

Given a string containing a directory, this function will return the number of bytes available on the corresponding filesystem or disk partition.

Parameters

directory

A directory of the filesystem or disk partition.

Note:

Given a file name instead of a directory, the behaviour of the function is unspecified and may differ between operating systems and PHP versions.

Return Values

Returns the number of available bytes as a float.

Examples

Example 622. disk_free_space() example

<?php
// $df contains the number of bytes available on "/"
$df = disk_free_space("/");

// On Windows:
disk_free_space("C:");
disk_free_space("D:");
?>


Notes

Note:

This function will not work on remote files as the file to be examined must be accessible via the servers filesystem.
