Hoi David. Love your stuff so I had to try this one, now that DX finally works for me again.
I've got a couple of issues with this widget..... well only one actually - it doesn't work....

Mouse-over does nothing (20+ seconds)
Clicking it does even less
I'm on Vista Ultimate + latest DX release (from SDC)

Snow,

Ok.. i loaded up my Vista test drive, imported this. There is an issue with the memory access WMI code. I will see what i can do, but i dont expect much.

I need to see if the WMI program i use to list out things works in vista.

Nice to see you around bud!

I stated in comment #2 that vista causes a memory error, and im looking for a solution.
So.... use in XP but not in Vista (YET). I will try to see if i can make an "IF" for vista/xp (if i can figure out what tells me if its XP/Vista...

Im glad its working for those that it is.. I hate when i test things 1000 times and it works all the time, but then everyone else has problems.. I dont know how else to do it but to pass it around and see if it works, then update it.

Ill work in Vista tonight and see if i can make it work, what i might do is make 2 version, Vista and XP.

Any comments on things you would like to see added?

Ok.. updated.. please let me know if it still gives you problems.
You have to CLICK on it now to load, should work better.
I put in code to check for XP/Vista and run the right WMI code for the right OS.

Enjoy.

David...
Finally!!!! A widget that displays total, free,used space and HD name....been waiting agez for summin like this. Thnx so much for the great coding work u have done!!!!

Just wondering is there a way to change the 'free space' to a non percentage value? ie have it display the KB value and if possible, change all values to GB? I'll tinker with it in DesktopX... but any hints would be greatly appreciated.

The widget seems to take a little while to load after clicking on the computer name and was just wondering also, if the info windows should open up with their previous positions recoreded.

Again, thankyou for this great widget!

1. the code is pretty simple on the free space/used space % setup, shouldnt be hard to change. Look at the info here, you should be able to change things to be the format you want. its is a widget so play, see what happens.

Drive_TotalSpace(Drive_Count) = FormatNumber((objDrive.Size/1048576),2)
Drive_FreeSpace(Drive_Count) = objDrive.FreeSpace
FormatNumber((objDrive.Size/1048576),2)

2. NO, the main window should stay where you put it (or should) but the (4) info windows are based on the location of the main window. They should be under/over and centered, unless you get to close to an edge of the screen, then they will "adjust".
