Trawling back through my old sample C programs produced this......
int diskfree(int drive, struct FREESPACE *df)
union REGS regs;
regs.x.dx = drive;
regs.x.ax = 0x3600;
if (regs.h.al == 0xFF)
df->secs_cluster = regs.x.ax;
df->avail_clusters = regs.x.bx;
df->sec_size = regs.x.cx;
df->num_clusters = regs.x.dx;
Usual disclaimers apply - and may also be completely useless and not
what you're looking for at all :)
Actually it looks like it doesn't do partition level, but it might be
enough to point you in the right direction. If not, it's in your
braincells now, so you're stuck with it ;)
