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).
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
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.
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.
