Getting disk drive information in Metro UI(Windows 8) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am working on application that provides all the available drives in the application and allows the user to browse folders. This should take place inside the metro application.

    Please help me out with suggestions and links.

    Thanking you,

  • You can let the user browse folders with the FolderPicker class.

    Your app won't have direct access to the file system outside of its local app data. It will be able to access folders selected by the user through the StorageFolder returned from the FolderPicker, but not arbitrary folders.

    The File picker sample demonstrates both the File and FolderPicker classes.
