You might possibly be able to use a .NET System.IO.DriveInfo
Although that is talking about C#, System.* is at least partially available in MATLAB, such as System.Diagnostics.Process https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/575608-system-and-system-diagnostics-process#answer_485447

There is the additional possibility that the computer name somehow resolves to the current computer. localhost or 127.0.0.1 or an ip address that is one of the local host ip addresses. Also watch out for \\?
