Drives Collection

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 example illustrates how to get the Drives collection using the Drives property and iterate the collection:

function ShowDriveList()
{
   var fso, s, n, e, x;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   e = new Enumerator(fso.Drives);
   s = "";
   for (; !e.atEnd(); e.moveNext())
   {
      x = e.item();
      s = s + x.DriveLetter;
      s += " - ";
      if (x.DriveType == 3)
         n = x.ShareName;
      else if (x.IsReady)
         n = x.VolumeName;
      else
         n = "[Drive not ready]";
      s +=   n + "<br>";
   }
   return(s);
}

Function ShowDriveList
   Dim fso, d, dc, s, n
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set dc = fso.Drives
   For Each d in dc
      n = ""
      s = s & d.DriveLetter & " - " 
      If d.DriveType = 3 Then
         n = d.ShareName
      ElseIf d.IsReady Then
         n = d.VolumeName
      Else
         n = "[Drive not ready]"
      End If
      s = s & n & "<BR>"
   Next
   ShowDriveList = s
End Function

The Drives collection has no methods.
