Enumerating Volume GUID Paths

The code example in this topic shows you how to obtain a volume GUID path for each local volume associated with a drive letter that is currently in use on the computer.

The code example uses the GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPoint function.

#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <tchar.h>


void main(void)
  BOOL bFlag;
  TCHAR Buf[BUFSIZE];           // temporary buffer for volume name
  TCHAR Drive[] = TEXT("c:\\"); // template drive specifier
  TCHAR I;                      // generic loop counter

  // Walk through legal drive letters, skipping floppies.
  for (I = TEXT('c'); I < TEXT('z');  I++ ) 
    // Stamp the drive for the appropriate letter.
    Drive[0] = I;

    bFlag = GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPoint(
                Drive,     // input volume mount point or directory
                Buf,       // output volume name buffer
                BUFSIZE ); // size of volume name buffer

    if (bFlag) 
      _tprintf (TEXT("The ID of drive \"%s\" is \"%s\"\n"), Drive, Buf);

For an example that enumerates all locally attached volumes and displays the device path, volume GUID path, and mounted paths (including drive letters), see Displaying Volume Paths.
