DriveGetType

Returns the type of the drive which contains the specified path.

Type := DriveGetType(Path)

Parameters

Path

Type: String

Any path contained by the drive (might also work on UNC paths and mapped drives).

Return Value

Type: String

This function returns the type of the drive which contains the specified path: Unknown, Removable, Fixed, Network, CDROM, or RAMDisk. If the path is invalid (for example, because the drive does not exist), the return value is an empty string.

Remarks

In general, Path can be any path. Since NTFS supports mounted volumes and directory junctions, different paths with the same drive letter can produce different results.
