PowerShell Deep Dive: II Win32_Volume

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

One question that I was asked at the deep dive –

Is there a way to link a disk volume back to the physical disk it resides on?

There doesn’t seem to be. If we test the WMI classes associated with a volume we get these results

Win32_Directory
Win32_QuotaSetting
Win32_ShadowProvider
Win32_ShadowCopy
Win32_ComputerSystem
Win32_Volume
Win32_Group

If anyone knows how to relate Win32_Volume to the physical disk (need to get the serial number off the disk) then I’d be interested in hearing about it
