  i     : Integer;
  space : Int64;

  // Display the free space on drives B, C, D, E, F, where present
  for i := 2 to 6 do
    space := DiskFree(i);

    if space >= 0
    then ShowMessage(Chr(i+64)+' Drive free space = '+
                     FloatToStrF(space, ffNumber, 20, 0))
    else ShowMessage(Chr(i+64)+' Drive not present');
