Hello :)

Is it possible to set a number for a threshold instead of percent? Like a warning about 50 Gigabyte free space instead of 10 % free space.

I appreciate your feedback!

free-space percentage threshold

Hey,

just check your "Disk Free" Sensor. You most likely will have a channel for "free bytes" and "free space". Click on the gear next to it and set the limits inside of the channel. Space for % - Bytes for GB.

Here some Screenshots with corresponding colors:

You would have to choose "free bytes -> Lower Warning Limit" of course... not "Upper" as in my screenshots ;-)

Just one additional thing: Careful when the WMI Free Space Multidisk sensor is being used as it also comes with pre-defined limits for the "Free Space" channels that are not visible in the channel as they are configured on "Settings" tab. Just in case :)

Kind regards,

Erhard

P.S.: Thanks for chipping in, Lukas :)
