    Hi the Performance object you are looking for is called PhysicalDisk, but you need to be part of the local admin group on the server you are monitoring.

    The drive letters are in the instances list. What exactly are you trying to monitor?

    The you need LogicalDisk object and the % Free Space counter. If you want the actual value then look at WMI and you will have to program for it. I normally set alerts on % Free Space and set the value at 10%.
