    Default detecting hard drives and other volumes

    Hi,

    I'm using Carbon / OSX / C++ ...

    Is there a way of getting information about each volume (hard drive / CDROM
    / Network connection) at run time? In particular, I'd like to obtain the
    number of volumes, the name of each volume, and if possible, the type of the
    drive (HDD / CD / Network / Whatever).

    Also, assuming that every drive had a file on it, "myfile.txt", how could I
    access that file from within my code. Normally, if the file is in the
    curerent directory, I'd say
    handle = open ("myfile.txt");
    ....
    close(handle);

    but how do I construct a path to direct it to another volume?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I suspect MoreFilesX might do some of that.
