I need to be able to find what drives, physical and logical are on a PC. I don't need to get drives mapped on othe rmachines.

I have searched EE and found 1000s of answers, some dating back to 1997, but cannot find anything specific to my needs. Many of the answers I have found relate to C++, VBScript, C# etc but no VB.Net type answers.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Many thanks
