Do you want to do this on the server or the client? If you want your
web application running on the server to find the amount of free space
on the client’s machine, I don’t think it can be done from a server side
script. You will need some thing like a Java applet to do this.

On the other hand, if you want to find the amount of space on the
server, Google turned up this:

Rails supports system() commands. So if you type: system(‘dh’),
personally i’d type:
system(‘dh -h’) for a nicer output :slight_smile:
