FileStore getBlockSize() method in Java with Examples

The getBlockSize() method of a FileStore class is used to return the number of bytes per block in this file store Object. Every File storage is organized into discrete sequences of bytes called blocks and a block is the smallest storage unit of a file store. Every read and write operation is performed on multiple blocks. This method is helpful in getting the size of Block.

Syntax:

public long getBlockSize() throws IOException

Parameters: This method accepts nothing.

Return value: This method returns a positive value representing the block size of this file store, in bytes.

Exception: This method throws following Exceptions:



  • IOException: if an I/O error occurs.
  • UnsupportedOperationException: if the operation is not supported.

Below programs illustrate the getBlockSize() method:
