This program reports free space available on a drive, or group of drives.
It will exit with an errorlevel that corresponds to the number of free
megabytes on the LAST drive reported.

Thus, if:

42,661,888 bytes total on drive C:
8,058,880 bytes free.

FREE will exit with errorlevel 7.

1 megabyte is 1024 bytes x 1024 so FREE exits with errorlevel 7, even though
the there are more than 8 million *bytes* free.

This makes FREE ideal for use in batch files with single drives that require
a specific amount of free disk space.
