Class to detect the hardware type (SSD or HDD) of a hard disk on windows based systems.

This implementation is based on emoacht.wordpress.com.

Installation

There is a NuGet package available.

Example

public void DetectFixedDrivesTest()
{
    var detectedDrives = Detector.DetectFixedDrives(QueryType.SeekPenalty);
    if (detectedDrives.Count != 0)
    {
        foreach (var detectedDrive in detectedDrives)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Drive {0}", detectedDrive.Name);
            Console.WriteLine("  File type: {0}", detectedDrive.DriveType);

            Console.WriteLine("  Volume label: {0}", detectedDrive.VolumeLabel);
            Console.WriteLine("  File system: {0}", detectedDrive.DriveFormat);
            Console.WriteLine("  Letter: {0}", detectedDrive.DriveLetter);
            Console.WriteLine("  HardwareType: {0}", detectedDrive.HardwareType);
            Console.WriteLine("  Id: {0}", detectedDrive.Id);
            Console.WriteLine(
                "  Available space to current user:{0, 15} bytes",
                detectedDrive.AvailableFreeSpace);

            Console.WriteLine(
                "  Total available space:          {0, 15} bytes",
                detectedDrive.TotalFreeSpace);

            Console.WriteLine(
                "  Total size of drive:            {0, 15} bytes ",
                detectedDrive.TotalSize);
        }
    }
