+Ok, i discovered another issue:
+if you use UnixDriveInfo in conjunction with drives with no media
+present, all size/free space properties
+return invalid values (of course they should return zero, ideally). 
+But the biggest problem is that .IsReady returns true, even if no
+media is present.
+Due to this behaviour there's now way to make sure that values returned 
+by the properties mentioned above are VALID.
+One can't rely on UnixDriveInfo, because if no media is present,
+results are flawed,
+and because .IsReady always returns true, there's no way to check for
+present media.
