Target computer drive information



disk_info = diskinfo(filesys_object, drive_name) returns configuration information for the specified drive on the target computer.

Note: The SimulinkRealTime.fileSystem object will be removed in a future release. See the release note for file system commands to use instead. These commands use the SimulinkRealTime.openFTP function and the functions for the MATLAB ftp object.

Input Arguments

collapse all

File system object created by using the SimulinkRealTime.fileSystem creation function.

The file system object represents the target computer file system. You work with the target computer file system from the development computer by using file system methods.

Example: fsys

Data Types: struct

Enclose the drive name in single quotation marks. The drive must exist on the target computer.

Example: 'C:\'

Data Types: char

Output Arguments
