SCCM 2012 – Enable Free Space in Reports

With System Center Configuration Manager, you can retrieve a lot of information about your computers, specially the Hardware Inventory.  And with Reporting Service Point, you can display it easily via a web page.

However, if you would like to display the Free space on a drive, you can do this but it is not enabled.

By default, when you execute the report “Disk information for a specific computer – Logical disks“, you will get a blank information about Free Space:

SCCM Free Space BlankHardware Inventory

To enable this option, you need to change the Hardware Inventory:

  • In the Logical Disk classe, check the Free Space item.
    Hardware Inventory Free Space

After that, wait for the Machine Policy retrieval and at the next Hardware Inventory, you will get the information.

FreeSpace Enabled
