More information:
This module uses the FileSystemObject to get System Drive info: Number of Drives, Volume Name, Drive Type, Root Folder, Serial Number, Total Byte Size, FreeSpace, Used Bytes, ShareName, Drive Letter and FileSystem (the FileSystemObject requires a reference to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime library). The information is displayed WYSIWYG and can be saved as a bitmap file.

Print Preview, print setup, and print capabilities are also demonstrated. And when the form is resized the viewing area of the document is resized also.

Note: The document is designed to display one page (depending on font) to contain information on up to about 16 drives. If your System/Network contains more you'll need to code for an additional page(s).


Instructions: Click the link below to download the code. Select 'Save' from the IE popup dialog. Once downloaded, open the .zip file from your local drive using WinZip or a comparable program to view the contents.
