Indeed :)

I am looking for a way to determine, given a file, whether sufficient
space exists on the drive to write the file, before that file is
processed, and it looks like fstatfs is the way to go.

It's the win32 part that I am most interested in - I don't want to come up
with an API and find win32 doesn't support it without a change to the API.

Does anyone know what the equivalent function is on win32 so I can do some
