xp_fixeddrives: Monitor SQL Server Disk Space Usage

Monitoring free disk space on SQL Server servers becomes crucial if your database growth is relatively fast. If you don’t have direct access to your server’s hard disks, xp_fixeddrives provides an easy way to monitor free disk space remotely.

The xp_fixeddrives system stored procedure returns a list of physical hard drives and the amount of free space on each one.


EXEC master.dbo.xp_fixeddrives

xp_fixeddrives is an undocumented system stored procedure. Microsoft may not include it in future releases of SQL Server 2000 or MSDE.
