Logical Drives

This one shouldn’t be a surprise

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_LogicalDisk | Select DeviceId, Name, Description, VolumeName, DriveType, MediaType, FileSystem, Size, FreeSpace | Format-List

Note this command will also show mapped drives

Again if you want to see the list of properties available

(Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_LogicalDisk) | get-member

Will do that.  Note this is different from the method presented in the previous two posts.  It is done this way only to show a different way of achieving the same result.  Either method will work in all three cases.  One of the great strengths of PowerShell is the ability to do things in multiple ways (it can also be seen as a great weakness by people new to PowerShell)
