  • Used space.
  • Unusable (bad) size.


pxSpace   A pointer to an F_SPACE structure.

F_NO_ERROR   The F_SPACE structure was populated.

Any other value.   The F_SPACE structure was not populated. The returned value holds the error code.

Example usage:

void vDriveInfo( void )
F_SPACE xSpace;
unsigned char ucReturned;

/* Get space information on current embedded FAT file system drive. */
ucReturned = f_getfreespace( &xSpace );
if( ucReturned != F_NO_ERROR )
/* xSpace.total holds the total drive size, xSpace.free holds the
free space on the drive, xSpace.used holds the size of the used space
on the drive, xSpace.bad holds the size of unusable space on the
drive. */

/* xSpace could not be completed. ucReturned holds the error code. */
