    I am sure there is an obvious setting that I am overlooking but is it possible to get both drive C: and drive D: status to show up in the Blue Iris status graph?

    This is what I currently see in mine. Not sure what the second bar graph is but my c: drive is a 128GB M.2 device if that makes any difference but it does show up as the C: drive in "My Computer" in Windows.

    I thinks it’s because you haven’t allocated any storage space on the c: drive so BI has no need to show it. Move your Alerts to the SSD as that seems to be best practise and that should then also list the c: drive.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try as you say and see if that makes any difference however I am already storing the DB on the SSD as suggested so BI already knows about the c: drive and I figured would track it's usage.
