One way of managing storage on your network involves
monitoring and managing space on all the disk drives on that network. Disk
Monitor allows you to do this remotely. Your network should have a Windows
domain and all the users should be authenticated with the Domain Controller.
Disk monitor’s application wizard scans all machines on the network and brings
out the drive information of all connected storage devices which are displayed
in drop down menu. Select the machine and its drives that you want to monitor,
and add them to the monitoring list. The main screen displays will show
the machine name, free space and the used space of the drive along with the file
