ds.exe 1.0.2.0 improved df so to speak
« on: May 29, 2015, 02:57:23 PM »
ds is a command line program to display disk space info in one of
B KB MB GB

Unlike df, which only displayed the disk free space and drive letter or share name, ds shows free used total and disk letter/share name.  The screen shot says it all.  :)

You may download from my site:

Good stuff!  Maybe a "ds /all" parameter (or similar) to easily output all drives?

Or it could do that by default instead of just the one taken from the current directory.  Good idea.   :Thmbsup:

ds.exe 1.0.1.0 available at link in first post.

I changed the default behavior when run with no arguments.  It searches for all the drives in the system and reports the space info.  CDROMs with no disc are reported as Not Ready.  Any other errors are just reported as No Space Info(e.g. a drive letter that does not exist etc..)

ds.exe 1.0.2.0  Added dashed line between each line of output for easier reading.
