External drive check with WMI

June 2, 2016 — Leave a comment

external drive attached == yes || no? Simple enough you might say but I hadn’t tried it before. Growing with confidence from practicing Perl, Python and Ruby in my spare time, I decided I should be able to use WMI, my go to tool when administrating Windows systems.

Here’s what I came up with…

@echo off
:main
echo "Please enter a valid hostname or type exit to quit"
set /p host="Enter Hostname: "
if %host% == exit goto escape
wmic /node:"%host%" logicaldisk get description, name
pause
goto main
:escape
exit
