Loop through all drives including hidden RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to loop though all computer drives like usb or logical once including those which are hidden? I searched but haven;t found anything about hidden drives. Is there any reference for that?

  • Hi JimmyJimm,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, how do you get the drivers? Could you provide the code.

    Based on my side, the code below works well for me.

     DriveInfo[] allDrives = DriveInfo.GetDrives();
                foreach (DriveInfo d in allDrives)
                    Console.WriteLine("Drive {0}", d.Name);
                    Console.WriteLine("  Drive type: {0}", d.DriveType);
                    if (d.IsReady == true)
                        Console.WriteLine("  Volume label: {0}", d.VolumeLabel);
                        Console.WriteLine("  File system: {0}", d.DriveFormat);
                            "  Available space to current user:{0, 15} bytes",
                            "  Total available space:          {0, 15} bytes",
                            "  Total size of drive:            {0, 15} bytes ",
