unsigned char ucReturned;

    /* Get space information on current embedded FAT file system drive. */
    ucReturned = f_getfreespace( &xSpace );
    if( ucReturned != F_NO_ERROR )
        /* holds the total drive size, holds the
        free space on the drive, xSpace.used holds the size of the used space
        on the drive, xSpace.bad holds the size of unusable space on the
        drive. */
        /* xSpace could not be completed.  ucReturned holds the error code. */
