To resolve the issue, do the following:
 

1. Make sure the remote computer is not protected by a firewall.
2. Make sure the Disk Space Monitor service account has enough rights to access the monitored server:

- Log on to the computer (where the Disk Space Monitor software is installed) under the account that you use to run the Disk Space Monitor software
- Run the Services snap-in, right click the services node and select “Connect to another computer”
- Specify the problematic server name and click OK. You should be able to successfully connect to that computer.

3. Try to access the following shared folder: \\server_name\c$. You will be prompted to provide the account credentials. Please specify the Disk Space Monitor service account credentials. You should be able to successfully access the \\server_name\c$ shared folder.
