How to disable monitoring specific drive?



Discovered the servers with AutoDiscovery using WMI & SNMP. How do I disable monitoring a specific drive?

Example: C: system D: data E: -Needs to be removed.

Noticed the sensor: Disk Free has a setting called WMI Disk Free Configuration set to All. It appears the setting can not be changed.

you could either use two WMI Free Disk Space (Single Disk) Sensors, one monitoring C: and the other monitoring drive D. Or you could simply disable the channel for drive E in the already existing sensor from being displayed.

Best Regards.
