I need to know how to get the drive letter of a physical drive in C#.  Preferably, I would like to loop through the drives currently connected and display their drive letters.  Could someone help me with this?

That code will retrieve all drive letters, including optical drives. To get only fixed drive letters, try this code


string[] drives = System.IO.Directory.GetLogicalDrives();
 
foreach (string drive in drives)
{
    System.IO.DriveInfo info = new System.IO.DriveInfo(drive);
    if (info.DriveType == System.IO.DriveType.Fixed)
    {
        // do what you want with it
    }
}
