DriveExists Method

Returns True if the specified drive exists; False if it does not.


                      object.DriveExists(drivespec) 

object

Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.

drivespec

Required. A drive letter or a complete path specification.

For drives with removable media, the DriveExists method returns true even if there are no media present. Use the IsReady property of the Drive object to determine if a drive is ready.

The following example illustrates the use of the DriveExists method.

function ReportDriveStatus(drv)
{
   var fso, s = "";
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   if (fso.DriveExists(drv))
      s += "Drive " + drv + " exists.";
   else 
      s += "Drive " + drv + " doesn't exist.";
   return(s);
}

Function ReportDriveStatus(drv)
   Dim fso, msg
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   If fso.DriveExists(drv) Then
      msg = ("Drive " & UCase(drv) & " exists.")
   Else
      msg = ("Drive " & UCase(drv) & " doesn't exist.")
   End If
   ReportDriveStatus = msg
End Function
