DriveType Property

Returns a value indicating the type of a specified drive.


                      object.DriveType 

The object is always a Drive object.

The following code illustrates the use of the DriveType property:

function ShowDriveType(drvpath)
{
   var fso, d, s, t;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   d = fso.GetDrive(drvpath);
   switch (d.DriveType)
   {
      case 0: t = "Unknown"; break;
      case 1: t = "Removable"; break;
      case 2: t = "Fixed"; break;
      case 3: t = "Network"; break;
      case 4: t = "CD-ROM"; break;
      case 5: t = "RAM Disk"; break;
   }
   s = "Drive " + d.DriveLetter + ": - " + t;
   return(s);
}

Function ShowDriveType(drvpath)
   Dim fso, d, t
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set d = fso.GetDrive(drvpath)
   Select Case d.DriveType
      Case 0: t = "Unknown"
      Case 1: t = "Removable"
      Case 2: t = "Fixed"
      Case 3: t = "Network"
      Case 4: t = "CD-ROM"
      Case 5: t = "RAM Disk"
   End Select
   ShowDriveType = "Drive " & d.DriveLetter & ": - " & t
End Function
