Create directory on existing fixed drive

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

hello, I need to add something to a script i have for installing a program. after the install i need to create a directory on a drive other than c:\ if it exists or if not then create it on c:\. any ideas? so far this is what i have but it only checks for E:\ then if not exist create on c:\. I need to prioritise it and create the directory on the highest fixed drive letter but only one one drive.

$var = DriveStatus( "e:\")

If $var = ("FIXED") Then

DirCreate("e:\Pro_work")

Else

DirCreate("c:\Pro_work")

Kondro,

Look at DriveGetDrive in the Help file. If you use the "FIXED" type parameter you will get a list of the drives in alphabetical order, so finding the highest is easy. :)

Thank you, yes there are several ways to get a list of local drives. My problem is coding it to create the directories in the highest drive letter found and then end the function.

Try

$_FolderName = 'Kondro'
$_FixedDriveList = DriveGetDrive ( "fixed" )
If Not @error Then DirCreate ( $_FixedDriveList[UBound ($_FixedDriveList)-1] & '\' & $_FolderName
