    Hard drive serial number?

    [Originally posted by Scott]

    I am doing some work with retreiving the hard drive serial number.

    Does any one know the acceptable ranges of the return values? In other words, are all serial numbers of type Long or in Hex what is the highest serial number to expect. Is it really true no two hard drives have the same serial number, even among different manufacturers?

    If you are talking about serial numbers of partitions it's not 100% true that all partitions have different sn-s. You can change this with utility such as Partition Magic from Power Quest. But, if you are talkig about real HD serial numbers I would like to see an example of code...
