Monitor Disk Space using a nice script

Hi everyone,

I was working to find a way to monitor disk space on servers. The solution is simple.
Go to one of your servers and open a PowerShell console as an administrator and type :
Set-ExecutionPolicy remotesigned

Now you can run the below attached scripts, but you need to customize some settings inside the script under the first section

Then you can run the script from a Power Shell window, or you can schedule it using Task Scheduler and it will send you couple of emails with nice reports.

Below is the script… I couldn’t upload the script in PS1 format, so i had to past it in a word document

Version 2 of the script is now available : http://sdrv.ms/1bEdvy2

Script Features:

  • You can set different thresholds for C drives and data drives
  • You can set warning threshold and error thresholds
  • Email notification
  • You can customize the script to report certain logical drives
