Get Quota/ vb.net DropboxClient API

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi, 

 

since one year i use a small "tool" to upload my files to DB periodically.

Getting used space works fine too, but how can i request the total quota / remaining free space?

 Dim box = Await dbx.GetSpaceUsageAsync()

But i dont see a suitable namespace / attribute to get my needed value.

 

I just checked the documentation but the allocation object doenst have some like quota or free space.

 

Can anybody help me out?

 

Best regards

Boris

The GetSpaceUsageAsync method gives you a SpaceUsage object, which has Used (the amount of space used) and Allocation (the total storage quota) properties for the user.

 

So, you can do something like this (depending on account type):

 

var space = await this.client.Users.GetSpaceUsageAsync ();
Console.WriteLine ("{0}/{1}", space.Used, space.Allocation.AsIndividual.Value.Allocated);
