Monitoring Volumes.




Can PRTG somehow monitoring Windows Volumes (HDD) without assigned Letter. For exmple we create a Parition on 500Gb, but don't assign a letter (for example F:). Can we find out this?

Thank you!

Privet Vasiliy,

That should be doable, but with a PowerShell script:

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> get-volume | Where-Object {$_.DriveLetter.length -eq 0}

DriveLetter FriendlyName FileSystemType DriveType HealthStatus OperationalStatus SizeRemaining      Size
----------- ------------ -------------- --------- ------------ ----------------- -------------      ----
                         FAT32          Fixed     Healthy      OK                    511.98 MB 511.98 MB
            Recovery     NTFS           Fixed     Healthy      OK                    730.76 MB   1.19 GB
            BOOT         FAT32          Fixed     Healthy      OK                    465.63 MB    495 MB

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>

You'll need to code the script though, I'm not aware of any script that does that already. Shouldn't be more than 20-30 lines, including the Remote PowerShell session part :)
