DriveLetter Property

See Also    Example    Applies To    Specifics

Description

Returns the drive letter of a physical local drive or a network share. Read-only.

Syntax

object.DriveLetter

The object is always a Drive object.

Remarks

The DriveLetter property returns a zero-length string ("") if the specified drive is not associated with a drive letter, for example, a network share that has not been mapped to a drive letter.

The following code illustrates the use of the DriveLetter property:

Sub ShowDriveLetter(drvPath)
    Dim fs, d, s
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set d = fs.GetDrive(fs.GetDriveName(drvPath))
    s = "Drive " & d.DriveLetter & ": - " 
    s = s & d.VolumeName  & vbCrLf
    s = s & "Free Space: " & FormatNumber(d.FreeSpace/1024, 0) 
    s = s & " Kbytes"
    MsgBox s
End Sub
