DriveGetDrive not working ?Get available drive letters

Recommended Posts

nadigo

Hi,

I am trying to get an available drive letter (a one that is not used by local HD, CDROM, network share or any other) during script run time in order to use that Drive letter to mount a file system

.

I use the

DriveGetDrive("ALL")
to list the existing disks and eliminate if from Z-A order.

I get the letter "Z" even when there is a mounted network share on the dirve ("Z") why ??

Thnaks,

Nadav

Func GetFreeDriveLatter ()
 
$DriveArray = DriveGetDrive("ALL")

;_ArrayDisplay ($DriveArray)

Global  $AtoZ [27] = ["25","A","B","C","D","E","F","G","H","I","J","K","L","M","N","O","P","Q","R","S","T","U","V","W","X","Y","Z"]
            
                For $i = 26  to 1 Step -1 
                    For $DriveCount = 1 to $DriveArray[0]
                        If  StringInStr (($DriveArray[$DriveCount]), $AtoZ[$i], 0) Then $AtoZ[$i] = False
                    Next
                Next

;_ArrayDisplay ($AtoZ) 

    For $i1 = 26 to 1 Step -1 
        If $AtoZ[$i1] <> False  Then 
            $MountDrive = StringUpper($AtoZ[$i1])
            ExitLoop
        EndIf   
    Next
    
    
    Return ($MountDrive)    

EndFunc

i think you have some array problem, its mess in there

try like this and tellme do the Z have false on msgbox?

#Include <Array.au3>
MsgBox(0,"",GetFreeDriveLatter())
Func GetFreeDriveLatter ()
    $DriveArray = DriveGetDrive("ALL")
    $listtemall = "A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z"
    For $x = 1 To $DriveArray[0]
        If StringInStr($listtemall,StringReplace($DriveArray[$x],":","")) Then $listtemall = StringReplace($listtemall,StringReplace($DriveArray[$x],":",""),"False")
    Next
    Return $listtemall
EndFunc

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

DriveGetDrive doesn't recognize mounted network.

So, if possible (i don't know about mounted network), try to add a condition if drive already exists...

Parameters

type Type of drive to find:

"ALL", "CDROM", "REMOVABLE", "FIXED", "NETWORK", "RAMDISK", or "UNKNOWN"

so it shud detect network drive connected (maped) to PC
