Script to find how many HDD

Last Modified: 2010-03-05

I want to find how many HDD are there in a remote machine with size.Is there a way to do this.

Watch Question

With computer management you can connect to remote computer. Then under the Disk management you can see how many drives it has and how they are partitioned.

Will that do or does the proccess need to be automated?


I ned to find for many machines.Any easier way could be useful..

I see. I dont know if theres a way to script Disk management But id reccomend posting a pointer in Programing to this question. If there is a way im sure sirbounty wont take long to find it : )
download scriptomatic2 from above link

select class "Win32_DiskDrive" from "root\cimv2" namespace for physical drives
select class "Win32_LogicalDisk" from "root\cimv2" namespace for logical disk with all drive letters
you have to tailor the script provided by scriptomatic to gather only required information.
