my @drives=Win32::AdminMisc::GetDrives(DRIVE_FIXED);

If you have any SUBSTed 'drives', GetDrives() will list those as if they were additional drives, which may or may not be what you want (I imagine it'd matter more if you had seperate alarms for each drive).

I'm not familiar with Win32::AdminMisc, but I got around this using Win32::DriveInfo's VolumeInfo...

foreach my $drive ( Win32::DriveInfo::DrivesInUse ) { next unless Win32::DriveInfo::DriveType($drive) == FIXED_DISK; my $serial = (Win32::DriveInfo::VolumeInfo($drive))[1]; next if $seen{$serial}++; }

Also, what happens if you have 0 bytes free? Won't the below cause your script to skip over it? (Forgive my ignorance if GetDriveSpace() returns some sort of '0 but true' string instead...)

  if($total && $free){

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
