Read-only collection of all available drives.


Removable-media drives need not have media inserted for them to appear in the Drives collection.

The following code illustrates how to get the Drives collection and iterate the collection using the For Each...Next statement:

Sub ShowDriveList
    Dim fs, d, dc, s, n
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set dc = fs.Drives
    For Each d in dc
        s = s & d.DriveLetter & " - " 
        If d.DriveType = Remote Then
            n = d.ShareName
            n = d.VolumeName
        End If
        s = s & n & vbCrLf
    MsgBox s
End Sub
