PowerShell script for disk space

I’ve written simple PowerShell script for monitoring of free space on one of our important volumes. As well as inserting it as plaint text below, for the sake of convenience I uploaded the script as a text file on FileDen file hosting service. Here is the link to the file.

$path = "F:\script\dspace.txt"
Clear-Content $path
$server = "SERVERNAME"
$recps = "qwe@contoso.com", "wer@contoso.com", "ert@contoso.com"
$sender = "alerts@contoso.com"
$user = "alerts"
$passw = "123456"
$thold = 3
$drives = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $server Win32_LogicalDisk | `
Where-Object {$_.DriveType -eq 3}
$i = 0

echo "This message is to inform you that server $server is low on disk space.
Please carry out corrective actions. Find details below. `n" >> $path

foreach($drive in $drives) {
	$size_gb = $drive.size / 1GB
	$size_gb_fmt = "{0:N2}" -f $size_gb
	$free_gb = $drive.freespace / 1GB
	$free_gb_fmt = "{0:N2}" -f $free_gb
	$ID = $drive.DeviceID
	$pct = $free_gb / $size_gb * 100
	$pct_fmt = "{0:N0}" -f $pct

	if (($ID -eq "F:") -and ($free_gb -lt $thold)) {
		echo "Server Name: $server" >> $path
		echo "Drive Letter: $ID" >> $path
		echo "Drive Size: $size_gb_fmt GB" >> $path
		echo "Free Space: $free_gb_fmt GB" >> $path
		echo "Percent Free: $pct_fmt%" >> $path
		$i++
        }
}

if ($i -gt 0) {
	$smtpServer = "mail.contoso.com"
	$smtp = New-Object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
	$smtp.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential($user, $passw)
	$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
	$msg.From = $sender
	foreach ($recp in $recps) {
		$msg.To.Add($recp)
	}
	$subject = "Disk space on $server is under $thold GB"
	$msg.Subject = $subject
	foreach ($line in Get-Content $path) {
		$body += "$line `n"
	}
	$msg.Body = $body
	$smtp.Send($msg)
}

To run this script from scheduler just write another simple .bat file with following line inside:

powershell -command “& ‘.\dspace.ps1′”

    One major suggestion I would make is to use the Send-Mailmessage cmdlet that is in PowerShell v2. You might also consider adding some error handling with Try/Catch? What happens if you can’t reach the server to get drive information? Unless you are running this locally in which case you don’t need the -computername parameter.
