By calling a static method from System.Environment called GetLogicalDrives(). This returns a string array that you can easily iterate.
Suppose you have a ListBox and a button:

private void btnPopulate_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   // Store in a string array
   string[] drives = Environment.GetLogicalDrives();
   // Loop into the string array
   foreach(string strDrive in drives)
      // Add items (drives) to the list

Hi Guys:

Can anyone tell me how to get network folders/mapped drives thru C#. Environment.GetLogicalDrives will only get Machine's Local Drives.

Please help me out.

Thanks in Advance.

Iterate trough a String "" with .ToCharArray() in a foreach loop. Then simply try with the new System.IO.DriveInfo(letter) if the Drive exists

by Wasiqs on Friday, October 2nd 2009 at 10:31 AM

simpliest way: DriveInfo.GetDrives()
