Enumerate all hard drives connected to the pc

Open original thread
Hi there I am unsure how to go about enumerating or walking through all the hard drives on my computer.

I have 2 internal hard drives and a few external I am able to see all the hard drives in my combobox but I would like to change my approach to how my program works.

I am looking for some advice as to how to detect all connected hard drives and then walk though them one after the other until all hard drives have been searched from start to finish.

Is it possible to return all the hard drives to a string or strings? and then if there is more than one to goto the next?....

thank you in advance
