List the Drives on your Computer using C# or VB.NET

If you want to create a program to provide information about your Computer Drive, then use the System.IO.DriveInfo class. The DriveInfo class can be used to determine the drives available on your computer, drive capacity, free space, type of drives etc. as shown below:

C#


// Add namespace System.IO;


DriveInfo[] myDrives = DriveInfo.GetDrives();


foreach (DriveInfo di in myDrives)


{                


    Console.WriteLine(di.Name);


    if (di.IsReady)


    {


        Console.WriteLine(di.TotalSize);


        Console.WriteLine(di.DriveFormat);


        Console.WriteLine(di.AvailableFreeSpace);


        Console.WriteLine(di.TotalFreeSpace);


        Console.WriteLine(di.DriveType);


        Console.WriteLine(di.VolumeLabel);


    }


}




VB.NET


    ' Add namespace System.IO;


    Dim myDrives() As DriveInfo = DriveInfo.GetDrives()


    For Each di As DriveInfo In myDrives


        Console.WriteLine(di.Name)


        If di.IsReady Then


            Console.WriteLine(di.TotalSize)


            Console.WriteLine(di.DriveFormat)


            Console.WriteLine(di.AvailableFreeSpace)


            Console.WriteLine(di.TotalFreeSpace)


            Console.WriteLine(di.DriveType)


            Console.WriteLine(di.VolumeLabel)


        End If


    Next di
