    Drive not showing on Hyena

    How come that some drive is not detected by Hyena but it shows from Windows Perfmon and Windows Disk Management (Computer Management)?

    Ex. Same Server: Using Hyena it will display drives C, D, E and F but when you check it from Windows Perfmon or Disk Management we will see drives C, D, E, F and G.

    We use Hyena for verification of disk alerts from our third party monitoring tool. Our monitoring tool also see drive G.

    As a quick test, go to the Command Prompt on your computer and try to view the G: drive on one of these computers like:

    dir \\server\g$

    What happens when you run that?

    the command returned - "network path was not found"

    verified it using perfmon and disk manager and the drive doesn't exist anymore.

    weird.. i'm sure this was not the case when i checked it the last time. hyena and perfmon side by side.

    Keep in mind that Hyena does not actually show drives, but rather admin shares. Admin shares usually have a one-to-one relationship with drives, but there can be exceptions. CD and USB-based drives are usually not represented as an example, or any sort of virtual or mapped drives. So when you see this happen, look to see what sort of drive the 'missing drive' is.

    You are correct. I did verify that the reason why it's not showing from Hyena is because of the admin share. Verified also from Windows Computer Management\Shares. Thanks!
