Any drive letter that is in the volumes and not mounted results in the system error, Jay. As it is the OS that responds, I am guessing the call is  pretty low level with no fast-reacting workaround.

For what it's worth, you could make WIN32 API calls to get probably all the drive-related info that you need without the system throwing error messages.

For starters, look at:

The GetLogicalDrives function returns a bitmask representing the currently available disk drives. 

The GetLogicalDriveStrings function fills a buffer with strings that specify valid drives in the system. 

The GetDriveType function determines whether a disk drive is a removable, fixed, CD-ROM, RAM disk, or network drive. 

As /H said above, I suspect Rev is already using (some of) these "low level" calls , but probalby not handling them correctly, resulting in the undesirable error messages from some platforms. I suspect Tuviah could fix this rather easily.
