Hello, Im having some trouble understanding the -e test on windows Im on win7 but I know my problem is on all windows. my objective here is to get the drive which my perl script lies in, but each time I preform a test windows gives me an annoying popup saying perl.exe No Disk .. if there is a better method I would appriciate your wisdom! Here is my code: Thank you!

sub get_drive{ if(-e 'A:\\extracted'){$drive = "A:";} elsif (-e 'B:\\extracted'){$drive = "B:";} elsif (-e 'C:\\extracted'){$drive = "C:";} elsif (-e 'D:\\extracted'){$drive = "D:";} elsif (-e 'E:\\extracted'){$drive = "E:";} elsif (-e 'F:\\extracted'){$drive = "F:";} elsif (-e 'G:\\extracted'){$drive = "G:";} elsif (-e "H:\\extracted"){$drive = "H:";} elsif (-e "I:\\extracted"){$drive = "I:";} elsif (-e "J:\\extracted"){$drive = "J:";} elsif (-e "K:\\extracted"){$drive = "K:";} elsif (-e "L:\\extracted"){$drive = "L:";} elsif (-e "M:\\extracted"){$drive = "M:";} elsif (-e "N:\\extracted"){$drive = "N:";} elsif (-e "O:\\extracted"){$drive = "O:";} elsif (-e "P:\\extracted"){$drive = "P:";} elsif (-e "Q:\\extracted"){$drive = "Q:";} };
