Get description of drives on the computer

I have a function that gives me all of the drives in the computer including the remote drives. I need a function that gives me it´s media type (FAT,FAT32,NTFS,etc), it´s path if it´s a remote drive, it´s volume label, and if possible it´s serial number.

Hi,

Use GetVolumeInformation API. All you need is there:

procedure DriveInfo(Drive: Char);
var
 x: integer;
 VSize, VFree: int64;
 VLabel, FSys: array[0..$FF] of char;
 SNr, FL, SysFlag: DWord;
begin
  if not(GetVolumeInformation(PChar(Drive+':\'), VLabel, SizeOf(VLabel), @SNr, FL, SysFlag, FSys, SizeOf(FSys)))
    then VLabel := '_None_';
  ShowMessage('VolumeLabel:'+VLabel);
  ShowMessage('FileSystem:'+string(FSys));
  ShowMessage('VolumeNumber:'+IntToStr(SNr));

  // VLabel  = Volume Label
 // SNr     = Serial Number
 // FL      = Max Filename Length
 // SysFlag = Volume Attributes
 // FSys    = File System (FAT / FAT32 / NTFS etc.)

 x := GetDriveType(PChar(Drive+':\'));
 // x       = TDriveType (See above)

 VSize := DiskSize(Ord(UpCase(Drive))-64);
 VFree := DiskFree(Ord(UpCase(Drive))-64);
 // VSize   = Volume Size
 // VFree   = Free space
end;

// usage:
DriveInfo('c');

Forgot this:

type
 TDriveType = (dtUnknown, dtNoDrive, dtFloppy, dtFixed, dtNetwork, dtCDROM, dtRAM);

May I ask you why I received a 'B' grade? You got full working code of what you'd asked for in less than an hour. What else could I have done for you?
