We have several Windows filers where volumes are mounted into Folders. These Folders are not shared (except the
filter\drive$\mountDira administrative share).

Is there a way how I can Monitor disk utilization "within" these Folders?

any Feedback is appreciated

best regards

Monitoring Disk Usage on Mount Points

Monitoring mountpoints on Windows systems is possible with two native sensor types in PRTG. You do not have to configure anything special in PRTG, just add the following sensors and choose the desired mountpoints in the Add Sensor dialog.

Note:: The WMI Logical Disk I/O sensor has replaced the deprecated WMI Logical Disk sensor.
