why is drivespacetotal showing space for local disk instead of space for network drive

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

here is my code below. i run it and keep getting the total space of local disk instead of network drives. i have 14 network drives which i want to scan and monitor their capacity. the statement " MsgBox(4096,"Drive " & $i, $var[$i])" works just fine and displays all my drive letters, i hv also tested the status of my network drives and they are all READY..please help...

$var = DriveGetDrive( "network" )
If NOT @error Then
    MsgBox(4096,"", "Found " & $var[0] & " drives")
    For $i = 1 to $var[0]
        
$totalspace= round(DriveSpaceTotal( $var) / 1024, 2)

        MsgBox(4096,"Drive " & $i, $var[$i])
        
        msgbox(4096,"", $totalspace)
    Next
EndIf

Are they all mapped?

This might make a difference as it may not scour your network for attached but unmapped drives.

goodbyplanet,

$var should be subscripted in : "$totalspace= round(DriveSpaceTotal( $var) / 1024, 2)"
