Summary

Monitors the free space percentage left on a disk drive.

Causes

An unhealthy state is caused by the disk having low free space in percentage terms. This can be caused by:

  • A fast growing auto grow file that consumed a large amount of available space on disk

  • A foreign object or file that consumed a large amount of available space on disk

Resolutions

This issue may be resolved by either:

  • Relocating all data from this logical drive to a larger logical drive

  • Increasing the size of the logical drive (if it is mapped to a volume that can be extended with Disk Manager)

  • Relocating fast growing foreign files from current logical drive to separate logical drive

  • Modifying the thresholds for this monitor to suit the workload

  • Alternatively if disk space is not a concern for the file:

    • Disable this monitor for this specific file or all files
