    Convert from \Device\HarddiskVolume1 to C:

    As we know we can convert from C: to \Device\HarddiskVolume1 by QueryDosDevice,
    is there any way to convert from \Device\HarddiskVolume1 to C: ?

    Thanks

    No, not really. You'll have to write it yourself. Here's how:

    1. Get all valid drives in the system with the GetLogicalDriveStrings() call;

    2. Go through all of them and convert each using QueryDosDevice() and check if the result matches the beginning of your path. If it does, then you have your conversion.

    Hey DraculaW,
    I saw this post and for the most part this is what I want to do. All I want to do is input the drive letter and get the physical device number. (i.e. input F and get back \Device\HardDisk2\...). Any chance you know how to do this in VB.NET. I can do this in VB6 but no way have I found out in VB.NET. Any help would be appreciated.
