First a few question for you.

1) local drive letters?????  or are some of them network drives?

2) do you want the server side drive letters or the client side drive letters?

3) if network drive letters what and how are you running for your http server software?????

Sry you asked a loaded quesstion...


say if some of them are network drive letters and your runnig say Apache as a service Apache does not have the ability to use the network drive letters. because the service is loaded before the network there for Apache cant see them.......

If you understand everything you know nothing!

I'm assuming you're using Windows, here is an option...
$drives = shell_exec("fsutil fsinfo drives");
