FileStore getUsableSpace() method in Java with Examples

The getUsableSpace() method of a FileStore class is used to return the number of bytes available to this Java virtual machine on the file store. This method is useful to check free space. This method returns the available usable space as a long value.

Syntax:

public abstract long getUsableSpace()
                     throws IOException

Parameters: This method accepts nothing.

Return value: This method returns the available usable space as a long value.

Exception: This method throws IOException if an I/O error occurs.
