Converting the FileSystemObject's DriveExists Method


Windows PowerShell


Definition: Given a specified drive letter or path, returns True if that drive exists.

DriveExists


You can use the Test-Path cmdlet to test for a drive as well as a path:


Test-Path c:


If you’re checking PowerShell drives, you can also use the Get-PSDrive cmdlet to return a list of all the drives, then check each of those drives to see if the drive letter matches the drive you’re looking for.


$letter = "C"
$d = Get-PSDrive
foreach($dr in $d)
{
    if($dr.Name -eq $letter){Write-Host "drive exists"}
}
