LowDiskSpace is a simple and small commodity that you can configure to 
watch a volume for low space. Configuration is via tooltypes, and is 
explained below:

VOLUME=sys:

This can be be any valid AmigaDOS volume in your system. Please make
sure to include the colon. If you wish to watch more than 1 partition
you can run a new instance of LowDiskSpace per partition. The commodity
list in Exchange has been updated to reflect which partition each
instance is watching.

INFO=xx

This is the threshold for the first information on depleting space.
The 'xx' should be any valuse in megabytes. So by setting this to
'20', the information requester will appear when the disk reaches 
only 20MB of available space. This is information only, and will 
tell you you are under this value.

WARN=xx

This is the last threshold at which you will be warned. A good value
for this is 1 or 2, and represents megabytes of free space before the
warning requester appears. No fractional values are allowed on either 
of the above tooltypes, so only values to the nearest MB please.

DEBUG

This tooltype acts as a switch to turn on certain debug information.
It has been needed due to some people reporting incorrect drive sizes 
been thrown up from LowDiskSpace. A requester will appear initially
showing the freebytes on the drive, the INFO level, and the WARN level.
If you are experiencing problems, turn on this switch and compare the
shown figures with the output from Info in a shell.

Running LowDiskSpace couldn't really be easier. Just place it in 
WBStartup, and it will be run at each system boot, and will tirelessly 
sit and watch the volume of your choosing.


LowDiskSpace comes to you from Creative Software and Simon Archer.
