I think this'll give you the same result with a lot less work:

declare @foo table (drive char(1),mbfree int)
INSERT INTO @foo EXEC master..xp_fixeddrives
IF @@rowcount = 26
SELECT '*' as drive
ELSE
SELECT TOP 1 drive FROM @foo ORDER BY drive



Or to see all the details:

declare @foo table (drive char(1),mbfree int)
INSERT INTO @foo EXEC master..xp_fixeddrives
SELECT * FROM @foo




Warning; xp_fixeddrives IS undocumented


Cursors are useful if you don't know SQL

A small point - VERY SMALL - is that Available is spelt incorrectly. Thought you might want to correct the article.
