Exclude some drives from disk utilization widget?

We have a Disk Utilization widget that shows the hard drive usage of all the servers. The widget uses the "PercentUsed" datapoint, but we've disabled that datapoint for certain drives due to their size. Instead we have "FreeSpace" alerts set up for those drives.

My question is, is it possible to exclude those drives from the widget since the "PercentUsed" amount is misleading?

    The prescribed way to do this is to have two different datasources for monitoring the two different groups of hard drives across the servers.

    I wonder if there is a better way to accomplish your goals without "disabling that datapoint" on certain devices.
