Now let's read the serial number of a harddisk in C# with ManagementClass WMI.
public static string HardDiskID()
ManagementClass partionsClass = new ManagementClass("Win32_LogicalDisk");
ManagementObjectCollection partions = partionsClass.GetInstances();

string hdd = string.Empty;

foreach (ManagementObject partion in partions)
hdd = Convert.ToString(partion["VolumeSerialNumber"]);

if (hdd != string.Empty)
return hdd;

return hdd;
This static function will simple give us the volume serial numbers.
