Since I dont have easily available different platforms for testing I was hoping that th following could be answered:
Will the string "/" serve as a cross platform root directory adequate for obtaining file system use across supported platforms or will I have to use "\" for windows and "/" for the rest?
Thanks in advance
You should actually get the name(s) from getFileSystemList() / FileSystem.getDirName(), have a look at the Df.java example. "/" would likely work on all supported platforms (including windows), but wouldn't give you the total when there are multiple disks and/or partitions.
