Hi @elementnc,

Can you show us the command you are using?

In my notes, I found these options (for check_nrpe): 

check_nrpe [...] -c check_drivesize -a "drive=C:" "perf-config=used(unit:B)used %(ignored:true) free(ignored:true)" "filter=type = 'fixed' and name not regexp '.*yst.*'" "warning=((free < 6G) or (total_used > 99%))" "critical=((free < 2G) or (total_used > 100%))"

resulting in:

WARNING C:: 64.29GB/69.655GB used|'C: used'=69031075840B;74043858493;74791776256;0;74791776256
