wmic diskdrive get statusat a command prompt, though you won't get the same level of detail. But if you have multiple drives in or atached to the system, you will need to use an additional parameter to identify which status applies to which drive. You could include the size and/or model, e.g.:
C:\Users\Lila>wmic diskdrive get status, size, model Model Size Status Seagate Backup+ Desk SCSI Disk Device 5000970240000 OK Seagate Backup+ Desk USB Device 4000776192000 OK Generic- Compact Flash USB Device OK Generic- SD/MMC USB Device OK Generic- MS/MS-Pro USB Device OK WD My Book 1140 USB Device 2000363420160 OK Generic- SM/xD-Picture USB Device OK WDC WD4003FZEX-00Z4SA0 ATA Device 4000784417280 OK C:\Users\Lila>
Or you could also query the media type, e.g., if you had just one internal and one external drive. E.g.:
C:\Users\Lila>wmic diskdrive get status, model, mediatype MediaType Model Status External hard disk media Seagate Backup+ Desk SCSI Disk Device OK External hard disk media Seagate Backup+ Desk USB Device OK Generic- Compact Flash USB Device OK Generic- SD/MMC USB Device OK Generic- MS/MS-Pro USB Device OK External hard disk media WD My Book 1140 USB Device OK Generic- SM/xD-Picture USB Device OK Fixed hard disk media WDC WD4003FZEX-00Z4SA0 ATA Device OK C:\Users\Lila>
