Determining physical hard drives with a batch file

skeeeveskeeeve Posts: 2Member

I am writing a simple batch file for DOS that will run under Windows 2000.

I would like to be able to determine how many physical hard drives are installed in the computer and what architecture (IDE or SCSI) and then use that result to call a particular subroutine.

Here are some more details:

We have three hardware options that I would like a batch file to be able to determine:

1. Two IDE Drives
2. One IDE Drive and one SCSI Drive
3. Two IDE Drives and two SCSI Drives

The first drive will have a C partition running Windows 2000. All other drives will have no partitions active. I am using Norton Ghost to set up the computers.

Any ideas?
