GetDrive Method

See Also    Example    Applies To    Specifics

Description

Returns a Drive object corresponding to the drive in a specified path.

Syntax

object.GetDrive drivespec

The GetDrive method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.
drivespec Required. The drivespec argument can be a drive letter (c), a drive letter with a colon appended (c:), a drive letter with a colon and path separator appended (c:\), or any network share specification (\\computer2\share1).

Remarks

For network shares, a check is made to ensure that the share exists.

An error occurs if drivespec does not conform to one of the accepted forms or does not exist.

To call the GetDrive method on a normal path string, use the following sequence to get a string that is suitable for use as drivespec:

DriveSpec = GetDriveName(GetAbsolutePathName(Path))
