The command: get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk
Run the command get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk to look up core information about each connected hard drive. The command returns drive letters and types, the overall size and free space in bytes, and the volume name.
Drive type uses a numerical code:
0 — Unknown
1 — No Root directory
2 — Removable Disk
3 — Local Disk
4 — Network Drive
5 — Compact Disc
6 — Ram Disk
You may use filters to display only select drive types, e.g. Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_logicaldisk -Filter “DriveType =4” to display network drives only.
Option 2: Retrieve hard drive properties
wmic diskdrive get
The command: wmic diskdrive get
The core command wmic diskdrive get needs to be followed by one or multiple properties.
The command wmic diskdrive get Name,Model,SerialNumber,Size,Status returns names, model types, serial numbers, the overall size in bytes, and the status for all connected hard drives.
Other properties that you may retrieve include InstallDate, InterfaceType, FirmwareRevision, DefaultBlockSize, CompressionMethod, Capabilities, Availability, LastErrorCode, or PowerManagementCapabilities.
Just add, replace, or remove any property from the command to create a custom one.
