Delphi Programming question

Hello,I want to get a list of available drives, preferabily with drive types with delphi 2.0.I have found the relevent API calls but was wondering if there was an delphi function call to do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is _no_ native Delphi call that does what you want.
The API-command works really fine, something like this:

  for DriveChar := 'A' to 'Z' do begin
    DriveType := GetDriveType(PChar(DriveChar+':\'));
    if DriveType>1
    then begin
      case DriveType of
        DRIVE_REMOVABLE : begin {Add to list here} end;
        DRIVE_FIXED     : begin {Add to list here} end;
        DRIVE_REMOTE    : begin {Add to list here} end;
        DRIVE_RAMDISK   : begin {Add to list here} end;
        DRIVE_CDROM     : begin {Add to list here} end;
      end;
    end else {This drive doesn't exist};
  end;

This will work on the logical drives 'A:'-'Z:', but not on
the unconnected "network" shares '\\server\share'.
For that you need another approach.

Hope this helps!
