 Disk Drives Check

Does anyone know how I can check which disk drives are on a machine
and network from within clipper app.

Have an app that requires user to enter a file name to be executed.
Have set up a selection window that shows user all files in all
directories on the current drive and allows him to select file to be
executed, however some users have more than one hard disk in their
terminals and have variuos network drives attached. So I need to be
able to somehow identify all drive letters available to the user and
allow him to select a file from a different drive. Would like to show
user all available drives for his particular work station.

At the moment the app runs through alphabet and test each possible
drive via CURDIR() , but I would like a neater and faster method.

Any ideas

Thanks

You might want to consider obtaining the Funcky lib.
It has functions to do what you want, and a lot of other neat stuff.
