    It is a Raid array. Lots of space

    There is no HarddiskVolume23

    This shows up as a Critical Alert.

    It is not always the same volume and does not show up every day

    I see someone on Google groups had the same problem Had to do with USB hard
    drives for Backup We are doing the same. His answer link is broken. Looks
    like he is talking about changing it in the monitoring alert thresholds for
    USB devices. Any ideas on the kb he may be pointing to? I emailed him will
    see if I get a responce.

    I wanted to paste a link but had trouble with it, so I am pasting in a post
    from an old newsgroup. I used it to fix the same problem on my SBS.

    Issue description:

    I understand that you receive low disk alert after you install a removable
    disk for backup.

    Analyzing and suggestion:

    As I know, the problem should be caused by the removable hard disk on your
    SBS for backup.

    We can follow these steps work around this problem:

    1. Click Start -> All Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Health
    2. Expand All Monitored Computers -> Server Name -> Small Business
    Alerts -> Core Server Alerts.
    3. Right-click Low Disk Space and click Properties.
    4. On the Details tab click Browse next to the Instance textbox.
    5. Choose "C: LogicalDisk.Name="C:"". Click OK twice. Now Low Disk Space
    will be named LogicalDisk="C:".
    6. Right-click "LogicalDisk="C:"" and click Copy.
    7. Right-click Core Server Alerts and click Paste. A new alert named
    LogicalDisk="C:"(2) will appear.
    8. Edit the properties of the new alert, change the instance to the D:
    9. Repeat until all fixed hard drives that we want to monitor have been

    By using these steps, we can stop the alerts for the USB drive, while still
    keeping the alerts for the hard drives enabled.

    I really appreciate your effort on this issue, please feel free to let me
    know the results. I am glad to be of assistance.

    Best regards,
