PossibleFreeSpace Property

The maximum amount of free space the vault could possibly have available.

Syntax

 cbdrive.getPossibleFreeSpace([callback])

Default Value

0

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getPossibleFreeSpace([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setPossibleFreeSpace([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This property reflects the maximum amount of free space, in bytes, that the vault could possibly have available. That is, the amount of free space that would be available if the vault automatically grew to its maximum PossibleSize right now, without any additional data being written to it. Therefore:

In both cases, parent_free_space is the amount of free space available for the vault to use for automatic growth. For a file-based vault, this is the total amount of free space on the disk where the vault's storage file (i.e., VaultFile) resides, as reported by the OS. For a Callback Mode vault, this is whatever value the application provides via the VaultGetParentSize event.

Please refer to the Vault Size topic for more information.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.
