vRealize Operation Alerts to ignore metrics

I would like to create an alert for Virtual Machine Guest File Systems to alert when specific drive letters reach 95% utilization.

My use case is: We have a number of SQL servers, we place the Temp DB and Windows Paging File on separate drives. Since these are static drive with no new data creation we create the drive to be only 1G larger than the amount of data. If Temp DB is going to be 20G we create a 21 GB drive. This causes vROPS to alert that a drive is Critical at 95% utilization. We want vROPS to alert when other drive such as C, D and M reach 95% but not the Temp DB and Windows Paging file.

How can I do this, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
