Specifically, I have this script:

Dim drive, string
dim free_space,number
dim low_space, boolean
dim process, number
dim bytes, number

Set (drive, "O")
Runandwait ("d:\spacecheck\op13e5.bat", "", 0, process)
DiskGetFreeSpaceEx (drive, bytes)
Divide( bytes, 1048576, free_space)
isLess(free_space, 1024, low_space)
....

And free_space ends up being 74.8 when explorer shows 24.8 gig free.

Also, more information, if i just run the DiskGetFreeSpace, they both return the same value. Looks like a bug to me. Maybe something that works in v2.0?

DiskGetFreeSpaceEx should work. The biggest drive I have here at this moment has 3.9Gig free space and DiskGetFreeSpaceEx gives the correct number. I will get back to you as soon as I find and try a larger drive.

Any update on this? Possible workarounds?

Waiting for v2.0 (tomorrow)

Here is the workaround for now:
Run("cmd /c dir /-c > dir.txt", "", process)
FileReadAll( "dir.txt", buffer)

// extract number of free bytes
GetToken( " bytes", buffer, dummy )
GetToken( "\n", buffer, dummy )
Trim( buffer, buffer )
GetToken( " bytes free", buffer, free_space )
