Version
-------

1.02 (See below for changes)

Function
--------

This ARexx script can be started from the "User-Startup" file and it
will monitor how full your various hard drive partitions are. If their
spare capacity falls below a preset level a warning will be given.

You can set, in a preference file, which hard drive partitions you want
included in the check and at what level of fullness you want the warning
given.

For example, you could set the preferences so that, when any partition
reaches 90% full, the warning will be given.

Why?
----

I had the idea for this script one day when I was part way through a web
browsing session when a "DISK FULL" error message suddenly popped up!

The browser could no longer save web pages to the hard disk cache so that
was the end of that web browsing session :-(

(Wow!! - I just recovered 30 megabytes by deleting junk with just a quick
5 minute look!! :-) Now for a decent spring clean!!)

So, to save me having to try to remember to check how full my hard drive
partitions are all the time, I wrote this script that goes into my
"User-Startup" file. It will now warn me when any partition is over a
preset level of fullness.

Changes From v1.01
------------------

I was reminded that some hard drives do not have device/partition names
starting with "DH" so I removed the search for "DH" and instead filtered
out device names such as RAM: RAD: DFx: and displayed all the others,
leaving it up to the user to decide whether to include the device name in
the monitoring process.

My thanks to Richie Burke, who has an AmiQuest drive with partition names
AQx:, for this reminder. R.Burke-97 at student.lboro.ac.uk
