Low Disk Space Alert on SERVER - SBS2003Sp1

I keep receiving this email Alert from SBS2003 ?? I only have drives c: d: e: and F:

Alert on SERVER at 5/18/2006 9:09:49 AM

The following disk is low on free disk space. Low levels of free disk space can cause performance problems and prevent users from saving files on the disk.

Drive Letter: HarddiskVolume6
Free Disk Space: 0.000000. MB
% Free Disk Space: 0.000000.%

You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

Any Ideas what HarddiskVolume6 is ?

Actually, I don't think you want to optimize them for quick removal.  This will make them show up as removable storage which will cause a problem with the backup.

It's best to get whoever changes the drives to Safely Remove them by clicking on the icon in the system tray.

Are you using a USB hard drive to backup?  If so, do you have it optimized for quick removal?  If you don't and you just pull the USB cable without clicking on the icon to safely remove the drive you'll get that error.

As Jeff said, almost certainly a USB disk.

Sometimes doing a full Scandisk of the problem USB drive seems to fix it.  Dont ask me why as i have no idea.

my occurance of this problem has not reappeared in the last 3 months.....

That's true, because a scandisk will reset the error flags on the drive that were caused by removing it incorrectly.  When it's removed incorrectly something like an "open-file" flag is left even though no files may have been left open.

BackupExec works fine for me as quick removal as it explicitly supports Removable Disks
