_chdrive

Changes the currentworking drive.

int _chdrive( 
   int drive 
);

drive

An integer from 1 through 26 that specifies the working drive (1=A, 2=B, and so forth).

Zero (0) if the working drive was changed successfully; otherwise, -1.

If drive is not in the range from 1 through 26, the invalid-parameter handler is invoked as described in Parameter Validation. If execution is allowed to continue, the _chdrive function returns -1, errno is set to EACCES, and _doserrno is set to ERROR_INVALID_DRIVE.

The _chdrive function is not thread-safe because it depends on the SetCurrentDirectory function, which is itself not thread-safe. To use _chdrive safely in a multi-threaded application, you must provide your own thread synchronization. For more information, see SetCurrentDirectory.

The _chdrive function changes only the current working drive; _chdir changes the current working directory.
