Reorder your letters to put 'A' at the end. This is an improvement, not a perfect solution; you will only get the pop-up if `extracted` is not found at all.
sub get_drive { for my $letter ( 'B' .. 'Q', 'A' ) { return "$letter:" if -e "$letter:/extracted"; } return; }

[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
