"this could be useful for writing [..] a disk management tool in C#."

Which was precisely my intention as a first "big" mono/GTK# app ;)

They are explicitly skipped as a result of the 'fields[0] !=3D "none"' - if=
course you wanted then in there then you could just remove that condition.

As has been pointed out this is probably not vaery useful as a
GetLogicalDrives on a Unix-like system.  However it could be adapted to
(say) a GetMountedDrives() returning an array of MountedDrive structs - this
could be useful for writing 'df' or 'mount' or a disk management tool in C#.
