HI,

just a qwick question.

how come when I run DriveGetSerial.au3 i get a different result to when I use: Start>Run>Cmd>VOL C:

The Disc label is the same as running DriveGetLabel.au3, but serial different.

Simple, the volume serial number isn't the drive serial number.

I *think* the volume serial number is the so-called partition serial/ID and it's software-made when you create a new partition. The drive's serial/hardware ID is truly hardware dependent and unique. That's the way I figure it, may be wrong though.
