selectdrive

Select target computer drive

Description

example

selectdrive(filesys_object,drive_name) sets the currently active drive of the target computer to the specified character vector or string scalar. If a drive with that name does not exist in the target computer, the function displays an error message.

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.
