Showing remaining HDD space, always as GB

node » June 1st, 2019, 1:42 pm

Hello! I've spent a few hours reading and tinkering with the excellent Infinimal skin, however I can't change the HDD display to how I'd prefer.

I'd like the HDD text to show remaining space rather than used/total, and always in GB (never autoscaling to TB). Any help doing this would be greatly appreciated!

Just remove the InvertMeasure option of the [measureUsedDisk1] measure (or alternatively replace it with InvertMeasure=0).
If in plus you'd like to not get the total space, replace the Text option of the [meterValueDisk1] meter with Text=%1.

In this case you have to calculate manually the space in GB. Add the following Calc measure to your code:

Code: Select all

[measureUsedDisk1GB]
Measure=Calc
Formula=( measureUsedDisk1 / ( 1024 ** 3 ))
This measure returns the space in GB. Now you have to modify the [meterValueDisk1] meter, to properly show the value of this newly added measure. Remove the AutoScale=1 option and replace the Text option with the following one: Text=%1GB. Also replace the MeasureName option with MeasureName=measureUsedDisk1GB. Since the meter now shows the value returned by one single measure, you can remove the MeasureName2 option.

Note a few other details:
  • The !Rainmeter... bang prefix is deprecated. Don't use, simply remove it. For example instead of the !RainmeterSetVariable bang used into the IfAboveAction option of the [measureAccessDisk1] measure, use the following one: IfAboveAction=[!SetVariable hddLedColor "#colorBar#"]
  • Also note that beside removing the !Rainmeter... prefix above, I also added brackets and quotation marks. Although none of these is absolutely needed, it's a good idea to get used to use them. In future can avoid a headache.
  • The PerfMon plugin is deprecated as well. Instead of it, you should have to use the UsageMonitor plugin.
