measure_disk_usage


Description:

[ Version ( since = "2.38" ) ]
public virtual bool measure_disk_usage (FileMeasureFlags flags, Cancellable? cancellable, FileMeasureProgressCallback? progress_callback, out uint64 disk_usage, out uint64 num_dirs, out uint64 num_files) throws Error

Recursively measures the disk usage of this.

This is essentially an analog of the 'du' command, but it also reports the number of directories and non-directory files encountered (including things like symbolic links).

By default, errors are only reported against the toplevel file itself. Errors found while recursing are silently ignored, unless g_file_disk_usage_report_all_errors is given in flags.

The returned size, disk_usage, is in bytes and should be formatted with g_format_size in order to get something reasonable for showing in a user interface.

progress_callback and progress_data can be given to request periodic progress updates while scanning. See the documentation for FileMeasureProgressCallback for information about when and how the callback will be invoked.

Parameters:

this

a File

flags

FileMeasureFlags

cancellable

optional Cancellable

progress_callback

a FileMeasureProgressCallback

disk_usage

the number of bytes of disk space used

num_dirs

the number of directories encountered

num_files

the number of non-directories encountered

progress_data

user_data for progress_callback

Returns:

true if successful, with the out parameters set. false otherwise, with throws set.
