I had a problem with my (small) disk filling up and crashing my mail

the % is greater than 97. I run the script daily from crontab. It works
fine.

Yesterday I downloaded an iso image (which brought the file system fill
from 93% to 100% so that the mail server could not send me the e-mail

tool?)so that I can be notified BEFORE the file system is too full?

Thanks for any thoughts,
