Used Drive Measure Not right....

Post by Bobski2000 »

Hi everyone,
Im very new to Rainmeter and thought id have a go at something basic like adding a drive (Drive x) from my NAS drive. This is a mapped drive. But for some reason its "Used" drive space looks wrong, /%2B instead of whats left ?
Can you help please?
Ive rechecked it a few times and all looks good to me.
I've included a picture and the code for you to look and check please?

Hi!

instead of MeasureName3=measureTotalDisk3 you have to use MeasureName2=measureTotalDisk3 because there are only 2 measures on this meter (MeasureName2 instead of MeasureName3)

Don't mind - we've all started like that. Just ask if new problems should arise.
