Troubleshooting Disk Space Reports
By Garth Jones
The other day, I wanted to know my servers’ free disk space availability. However, when I ran the built-in ConfigMgr report, Computers with low free disk space (less than specified % free), no results appeared.
Then I remembered that starting with ConfigMgr 2012, the free disk space attribute is not enabled by default, so you need to enable it! Thankfully, it’s a simple process.
All of the screenshots below are from my ConfigMgr Current Branch lab.
Open the ConfigMgr console, select the Administration work area, select Client Settings, right-click on Default Client Settings and then select Properties.
Select the Hardware Inventory node and then click on the Set Classes… button.
Locate the Logical Disk class and then select the Free Space (MB) attribute. Click the OK button twice in order to return to the console.
Now the report will work, but keep in mind that you will have to wait for a hardware inventory cycle to occur before using the report again.
