in reply to List of Mounted Drives on Win32

Ok, I looked up some stuff and I found out that Win32::AdminMisc will do what you want if you have a WinNT system. Here's an example(Not tested).

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Win32::AdminMisc; my $drives = GetDrives( DRIVE_FIXED ); print $drives . "\n";

The drive types are:
DRIVE_FIXED - hard drive DRIVE_REMOVABLE - floppy DRIVE_REMOTE - network drive DRIVE_CDROM - cdrom DRIVE_RAMDISK - emulated drive in memory
Some other functions that might help are:
GetDriveType( DRIVE ) - returns the drives type GetDriveSpace ( DRIVE ) - returns the drives space GetVolumeInfo ( DRIVE ) - returns hash of drive info Element Desc ------------------ Volume Volume Label Serial Serial number of drive

I tried this script after installing Win32::AdminMisc and it told me I needed WinNT. So I wrote this one.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w for( my $i='a'; $i lt 'z'; $i++ ) { if ( -e "$i:/" ) { print "Drive $i exists\n"; } }

This works under Win98 but it didn't pick up the A: drive because it didn't have any media in it. It also delayed while seeing if the A: drive had something in it. I also don't know how to find the volume label.
I'm hoping you're on a WinNT system, then you're set.
