Re: Drop-down (Combo Box)
Use GetLogicalDrives, which returns a DWORD that's a bitmask telling which drive letters are assigned. Bit 0 is drive A, bit 1 is drive B, and so on.

Re: Drop-down (Combo Box)
Depending on the number of bit set you need to add the character 'A' , 'B' as a string into the combo box.
