______________________________________________________

Purpose: FREE.COM reports the number of unallocated
bytes on a floppy or hard disk.

Format: FREE [d:]

Remarks: FREE is in many respects a companion program
to SIZE.COM: the latter tells you how much
storage space you must have to make your
copies, the former tells you how much you do
have.

The information provided by FREE.COM is, of
course, available with the DOS commands
CHKDSK and DIR. Where a large group of files
is involved, however, the DOS commands are
very slow in operation; FREE is almost
instantaneous.

Notes:

1. Requires DOS 2.0 or later.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
