Remote Low Disk Space

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have found this code which will go off and list servers and how much disk space they have remaining, is there a way to only show servers where the disk space is a user defined % less than the total space.

Or any other way of doing this, I have 200 servers and want a report generated when servers are running low on disk space which I can then email to the administrators.

Many thanks
