I have a stock of unused hard drives we keep on hand in case of failure that I would like to keep track of in LANSweeper. Is anyone else doing this and how are you doing it? I'm looking for some tips on the best way to go about this. I already have a spreadsheet with the data to do an import. Just not sure the best way to go about using LANSweeper to do this.

Creating a new asset type for your spare hard drives and just creating custom assets for them works. This way you can also create relations with them once they do get used.

The relationship part is interesting. Once they get used, LANSweeper will detect them in the machine. Would they then become a component of the machine and removed from inventory or would LANSweeper merge the two?

I like this idea for the external usb drives etc. might be wise to order a usb barcode scanner as most of them have some sort of simple barcodes to read and make data entry easier.
