Improve how the Server Settings Migration Wizard (SSMW) import handles the display of available drive space.


When importing a SSMW package on the destination server, with the Enterprise Vault (EV) binaries installed on the root of a drive (i.e. D:\) , the SSMW displays negative values for available drive space.

Desired Behavior:

Display a warning message informing the administrator that the EV Binaries are installed at the root of the drive.  To include a message indicating that it is best practice to install the EV Binaries to a sub directory on EV server.

If the above changes are put in place, it may be desirable to modify the EV installer to have the same functionality.

Please vote this up if you see a lot of installs in the route of a partition.
