Does SQL Server have any knowledge of the drive capacity / free space of the drives your SQL databases reside on? I.e. would it be possible to write a query for all SQL databases housed on drives with xyz free space, or xyz GB of free space? if for example you wanted to query all your SQL servers for those with DB on drives with less than 5% capacity free remaining space or 2 Gb free space?
