HP Win2003 Storage Server Low Disk Space alerts

I enjoy the fact that I can receive alert emails from my DL185 G5 HP Storage Server2003 telling me when a drive is low on Disk space, :smileyhappy: however there are times when I don't want to be annoyed by these alerts. :manmad:

 

Case in point: I have allocated an entire logical drive (F: ) to store shadow copies for another logical partition. I have told the Shadow Copy Service to use all available space on the logical drive (as recommended by MS) Now I constantly get alerts that I am running low on disk space "There is less than 15 % of disk space remaining on F:" (of course, since the shadow copies are trying to use the entire drive as instructed)

 

I can find nowhere in the HP storage server settings to turn off the alert email for low disk space, or per volume (which is my preferred method, since I still want alerts on my other data volumes) :mansurprised:

 

Now, please dont tell me to simply reduce the amount of storage space used by the Shadow copy service. It is ridiculous to me that I should have to give up that amount of space. Storage Server must have a way to prevent this alert (I'm assuming a registry hack since there is no setting in the HP Unified storage manager... and none in the MMC either)

 

Can anyone help with this? Thanks for your time.

You may extend the partition that has no free space. see the page http://www.hdd-tool.com/partition-manager/how-to-solve-c-drive-run-out-of-space-problem.htm

In server Manager / Systeme and Network Settings, you can configure email alert settings.
