Description :

This function returns the number of granules allocated, the number of granules free, and the granularity size in a specified database. Granules relate to the number of bits in space allocation instead of the number of bytes. By multiplying the granules allocated by the granularity size, and the granules free by the granularity size, the result will be in bytes allocated and free. Please see the function NSFDbSpaceUsage for more information.

Parameters : Input : hDB - Handle to the database.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call -- indicates either sucess or what the error is. The return codes include:

retFreeGranules - Pointer to the returned number of granules free in the database.

retGranularity - Pointer to the granularity size of the database.
