You can also resize partitions or add additional storage to the server to increase available disk space.

Regularly monitoring disk space and performing maintenance tasks can help prevent low disk space alerts in the future.

Consider disk cleanup tools to remove temporary files and free up additional space. Regularly monitor disk health to prevent any critical issues.

Upgrading Disk for More Storage Capacity

To upgrade the disk for more storage capacity, first identify the specific disk that is running low on space. Next, check the available disk space on other disks to determine the best disk to upgrade. Once the disk is selected, backup all important data before proceeding with the upgrade. Install the new disk and transfer the data from the old disk to the new one. Finally, reconfigure your storage settings in SCOM to reflect the upgraded disk.
