I have an alert that will tell me when a drive has less than 10% space available. Along with this alert I would like to know if there is a way to see what files have been added or modified to trigger the event.

To be quite honest, WatchDISK is fairly old and hasn't been updated in quite a while. PA Storage Monitor is meant to be its replacement. You will find there are a lot of items in PA Storage monitor that will help you track down how your drive is filling up. Take a look at the following for more information.

Hi

Using PA Server Monitor, there isn't a way to find the actual file(s) that triggered the disk space alert. You could try to use a File & Directory Change Monitor to monitor for changes and new files but this will give you information all of the time not just when the disk space alert was fired.

Question: Are you looking just for big files or any files? What happens if the you get on large file to gets you close to the 10% and then you get a very small file the pushes you over. Do you want to know about just the small file or are you wanting to know about the large file?

Thanks
Quinn

I am really just trying to track down what caused the drive to fill. I might look at watch disk.
