i use a cron job to monitor my disks and email me if they approach capacity. i'm not sure of the benefit of informing your users; better for a sysop to take care of it before it becomes a problem. i also use cron jobs to purge older files from the ftp and tmp dirs.

Hi, is there a way to warn users when the disk becomes full during a URL-based file upload (and local file upload)? I had to manually delete the temp files created during a large upload that hanged, after which Galaxy could not be re-started due to insufficient disk space.
