Drives Collection Object
Microsoft Scripting Runtime
All drives connected to the current machine are included in the Drives collection, even those that aren’t currently ready (like removable media drives with no media inserted in them). The Drives collection object is read-only.
The Drives collection cannot be created; instead, it is returned by the Drives property of the FileSystemObject object, as the following code fragment illustrates:
Dim oFS, oDrives Set oFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set oDrives = oFS.Drives
For an overview of the filesystem object model, including the library reference needed to access it, see the “File System Object Model” entry.
Data Type: Long
Returns the number of Drive objects in the collection.
Data Type: Drive object
Returns a Drive object whose key is
key, the drive letter. This is an
unusual collection, since the drive’s index value (its ordinal
position in the collection) can’t be used; attempting to do so
generates runtime error 5, “Invalid procedure call or
argument.” Since attempting to retrieve a Drive object for a
drive that doesn’t exist generates runtime error 68, it’s a
good idea to call the FileSystemObject object’s DriveExists
