Because most probably in the appropriate String meter a MeasureName2=NAME-OF-MEASURE option is missing. Don't know which is the meter in cause, you probably should post the code of your skin.

Looks like illustro 2 disk skin updated to 3 disks.
Make sure it looks like this for the parts to add.

[Variables]
; Variables declared here can be used later on between two # characters (e.g. #MyVariable#).

disk3=E:

; ----------------------------------
; MEASURES return some kind of value

[measureUsedDisk3]
Measure=FreeDiskSpace
Drive=#disk3#
InvertMeasure=1
UpdateDivider=120

Yeah, probably you are right. The part which is missing I guess is the MeasureName2=measureTotalDisk3 option of the [meterValueDisk3] meter.
And one more: the copy / paste operation didn't succeed good enough either, because the Text option of the same meter is probably Text=%1B/%2Bused, instead of your Text=%1B/%2B used (see the space between %2B and the used word), at least this is what I think based on the posted screenshot (yep, I'm teasing!).

Here it is:

Code: Select all

; Lines starting ; (semicolons) are commented out.
; That is, they do not affect the code and are here for demonstration purposes only.
; ----------------------------------

; HOWTO: Adding more disks
; ----------------------------------
; Adding more disks is a pretty straightforward process. Follow the following steps to turn
; this 2 disks skin into a 3 disks skin. You can then extend it even further as you wish.
;
; 1) Create a new variable called disk3=X: directly below disk2=D: in the [Variables] section
; 2) Create a copy of the [measureTotalDisk2] and [measureUsedDisk2] sections
; 3) Rename the copied sections to [measureTotalDisk3] and [measureUsedDisk3], respectively.
;    Also change Drive=#disk2# to Drive=#disk3#
; 4) Create a copy of the [meterLabelDisk2], [meterValueDisk2], and [meterBarDisk2].
;    Rename all Disk2's in the copied sections to Disk3.
; 5) Now we need to change the Y= values to adjust height. Change Y= under [meterLabelDisk3]
;    to Y=80 (calculated by adding 20 to the Y= value of previous meterLabel).
;    Then change Y= under [meterBarDisk3] to Y=92 (calculated by adding 20 to the Y= value of previous meterBar).
; 6) Save the file as '3 Disks.ini'. Now right-click on the Rainmeter tray icon and select
;    'Refresh All'. Now go activate the '3 Disks.ini' skin and enjoy! :)

Not to nitpick, but just to be precise, this has to be done in the [meterValueDisk3] meter.
