Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-463) FileSystemUtils#freeSpace can be simplified by using new Java 6 File methods

Sebb created IO-463:
-----------------------

             Summary: FileSystemUtils#freeSpace can be simplified by using new Java 6 File
methods
                 Key: IO-463
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-463
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sebb


Commons IO now requires Java 1.6, which has some useful new File methods:

File.getFreeSpace() / getUsableSpace()

These could be used to radically simplify (and speed up) the FileSystemUtils freeSpace methods,
as well as making it OS-independent.

The methods should be deprecated in favour of directly calling the File methods directly.
Perhaps even deprecate the entire class?  - it only contains the freeSpace methods currently.

Note: a lot of the tests will becorme redundant or need reworking.
