Making Power Shell script more appealing

Could someone please advise me, based on the below code, how to: 1) make the Server name present as "Server" rather then the __SERVER it is supposedly scripted to - and 2) how to change the DriveType -eq 3 to just specify drive type = Hard Drive or HD?

$users = "" # List of users to email your report to (separate by comma) $fromemail = "" $server = "" #enter your own SMTP server DNS name / IP address here $list = $args[0] #This accepts the argument you add to your scheduled task for the list of servers. i.e. list.txt $computers = get-content $list #grab the names of the servers/computers to check from the list.txt file. # Set free disk space threshold below in percent (default at 10%) [decimal]$thresholdspace = 10

#assemble together all of the free disk space data from the list of servers and only include it if the percentage free is below the threshold we set above. $tableFragment= Get-WMIObject  -ComputerName $computers Win32_LogicalDisk ` | select __SERVER, DriveType, VolumeName, Name, @{n='Size (Gb)' ;e={"{0:n2}" -f ($_.size/1gb)}},@{n='FreeSpace (Gb)';e={"{0:n2}" -f ($_.freespace/1gb)}}, @{n='PercentFree';e={"{0:n2}" -f ($_.freespace/$_.size*100)}} ` | Where-Object {$_.DriveType -eq 3 -and [decimal]$_.PercentFree -lt [decimal]$thresholdspace} ` | ConvertTo-HTML -fragment

# assemble the HTML for our body of the email report. $HTMLmessage = @" <font color=""black"" face=""Arial, Verdana"" size=""3""> <u><b>Disk Space Storage Report</b></u> <br>This report was generated because the drive(s) listed below have less than $thresholdspace % free space. Drives above this threshold will not be listed. <br> <style type=""text/css"">body{font: .8em ""Lucida Grande"", Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;} ol{margin:0;padding: 0 1.5em;} table{color:#FFF;background:#C00;border-collapse:collapse;width:647px;border:5px solid #900;} thead{} thead th{padding:1em 1em .5em;border-bottom:1px dotted #FFF;font-size:120%;text-align:left;} thead tr{} td{padding:.5em 1em;} tfoot{} tfoot td{padding-bottom:1.5em;} tfoot tr{} #middle{background-color:#900;} </style> <body BGCOLOR=""white""> $tableFragment </body> "@

# Set up a regex search and match to look for any <td> tags in our body. These would only be present if the script above found disks below the threshold of free space. # We use this regex matching method to determine whether or not we should send the email and report. $regexsubject = $HTMLmessage $regex = [regex] '(?im)<td>'

# if there was any row at all, send the email if ($regex.IsMatch($regexsubject)) {     send-mailmessage -from $fromemail -to $users -subject "Disk Space Monitoring Report" -BodyAsHTML -body $HTMLmessage -priority High -smtpServer $server }

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Really nothing more than a text file that contains a series of PowerShell commands. Microsoft actually classifies scripts as a type of PowerShell modules. When imported, modules allow administrators to execute code that does not exist within the core command set. In essence, the script that you create has a file name, and that file name can be treated as a PowerShell command the script must be a text file that has a file extension of .PS1.include code that PowerShell can run

    don't know for sure what limits powerscript places on the SQL statement, but it might be as simple as changing select __SERVER, DriveType, VolumeName, Name, @{n='Size (Gb)' to select __SERVER as Server, case DriveType when 1 then 'xx' when 2 then 'yy' when 3 then 'HD' end as DriveType, VolumeName, Name, @{n='Size (Gb)'
