Anyone know how to list in a listbox all the drives on your computer?

I want the list to show the drive names, so if I change the name of my main hard drive to MyHardDrive which originally was Local Drive, in the listbox it should show MyHardDrive ...

Please help

Hi there,
check it out; http://www.vbdotnetheaven.com/UploadFile/mahesh/EnvironmentVariable04232005084223AM/EnvironmentVariable.aspx?ArticleID=b2e84a7c-4a2b-490a-a4ef-d41ad93fab6d

This is what you can use:
' Get all logical hard drives
Dim drives As String()
Dim counter As Int32
drives = Environment.GetLogicalDrives()
Console.WriteLine("Available drives:")
For counter = 0 To drives.Length - 1


Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Or just...

 ListBox1.DataSource = Environment.GetLogicalDrives()
