This document provides steps required to use Desktop Central to check the volume of a drive before installing software applications in it. For example, you try to install a software application in a client computer. The size of the software application is 10 MB. However, the installation stops midway because of lack of space in the drive that you are installing it in, and your computer hangs. You can use the steps given below to check the space available in a drive before installing a software application in it.
To use Desktop Central to check the volume of a drive before installing applications in it, follow the steps given below:
Note: If you do not specify the drive, it will check the volume of the default system drive. For example C: (Refer to Figure 1: Example for a script in a network share, below). The space of a volume should be converted to megabytes (MB) before you enter it.

The settings will reflect in the client computers during the agent's 90-minute refresh cycle, during startup or during logon—whichever takes place earlier.
If there is not enough storage space available, you will see the error message, "Pre-Installation failed : Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.", when you check the deployment status. Desktop Central will not install the package that you created.
