The report is taking a raw value of disk space (such as 1660304752640) representing the amount of bytes on a drive, and tries to convert it to a decimal value to display the number of MB on the disk (e.g. 1583390).  The conversion was capped at 9 decimal points, which wasn't enough for TB to display.


There is a fixed version of the report attached to this article.  The file can be downloaded and imported into the Physical Drive folder, to overwrite the current version of the report.


This report will be integrated into a future release of Inventory Solution.
