Hey @prashanth_pachu

Yes

You have to import first System.IO namespace in your project.

DriveInfo drive_info = new DriveInfo(“C”);
Int64 Space_available= drive_info.AvailableFreeSpace;
Writeline((Space_available / (1024 * 1024*1024)).ToString) //will return available space in GB

Reference Sample: Drive space.xaml (5.6 KB)

hi @aksh1yadav
Can i do the same for remote system?

hey @prashanth_pachu

Yes we can .
i am attaching one powershell script and use INvoke power shell activity with property IsScript to check.

I tried this, due to restricrions ,i cant execute powershell script

One more way (non scripting). You will still have permission restrictions, explore the options mentioned in comments.

RemoteSpace.xaml (17.2 KB)

hi @vvaidya
Thanks for the code but now i am not able to pass the password,it is showing an errror saying that option.Password is WriteOnly.
I used the same logic in c# console application , it worked, but not in UiPath

The Method above by Vinay uses WMI.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a set of specifications from Microsoft for consolidating the management of devices and applications in a network from Windows computing systems.

Note: - Connection credentials to the remote computer, not needed if the logged account has access.

First Let me know your account has access then omit this password property and username property because

and if not then try the Invoke Code Activity and paste the code inside that :slight_smile:

        Dim options As New system.Management.ConnectionOptions()
        options.Username = "Aksh"
        options.Password = "testAkshay"

if you have already created an options object for ConnectionOptions then use that inargument in invoke code.

Hey @prashanth_pachu

Yeah we can even with Process thread and Performance counter classes also you can get the information but you want this also for remote server or a local system where you are running your script?
