Hi Imran,1. In the SCE console, navigate to Authoring pane -> Management Pack Objects -> Monitors.2. Choose Scope "Windows Server 2003 Logical Disk", and in the right pane, expand to Target: Windows Server 2003 Logical Disk -> Entity Health -> Availability -> Logical Disk Availability & Logical Disk Free Space. You can verify the properties.3. Right-click on Logical Disk Free Space and choose Overrides -> Overrides the monitor -> For all objects for type: Windows Server 2003 Logical Disk.4. Override the corresponding parameters to the value you want. For example, you can modify the Error % Threshold for System Drivers from 10 to 20.5. Click Apply and OK.Note: These steps use Windows Server 2003 Operating System as an example. You should also repeat the steps for other Operating Systems, such as Windows XP, Windows 2000 server and etc, if you are supervising these machines.--------------------Regards,Eric Zhang

I have done the following steps in Eric's solution and am not seeing any alerts on my one server that has 100% drive space full. It is showing a fragmentations alert but nothing about drive space.
