About

The BrowseVolumes class provides means to iterate through the volumes/drives mounted in the system.

Using the BrowseVolumes class always follows the same concept:

// This example demonstrates browsing volumes with BrowseVolumes.
AutoAlloc<BrowseVolumes> browseVolumes;
if (!browseVolumes)
return maxon::OutOfMemoryError(MAXON_SOURCE_LOCATION);
browseVolumes->Init();
ApplicationOutput("Available volumes:"_s);
while (browseVolumes->GetNext()) // Note: GetNext() needs to be called at least once, to get the first element.
{
const Filename fn = browseVolumes->GetFilename();
Int32 bvFlags = 0;
const maxon::String volumeName = browseVolumes->GetVolumeName(&bvFlags);
{
UInt64 freecaller = 0, total = 0, freespace = 0;
maxon::String freeText = ""_s;
if (GeFGetDiskFreeSpace(fn, freecaller, total, freespace))
{
const maxon::String memoryFree = maxon::String::MemorySizeToString(freespace);
const maxon::String memoryTotal = maxon::String::MemorySizeToString(total);
const maxon::String memoryFreeForC4D = maxon::String::MemorySizeToString(freecaller);
freeText = ": "_s + memoryFree + " of "_s + memoryTotal + " free, ("_s + memoryFreeForC4D + " available for C4D)"_s;
}
ApplicationOutput(" @ (@)@"_s, maxon::String(fn.GetString()), volumeName, freeText);
}
}

Allocation/Deallocation

BrowseVolumes objects are created with the usual tools, see Entity Creation and Destruction Manual (Classic).
