configure a low disk space alert

Hello
I have 2003 sbs server.  I am trying to configure a low disk spaced alert  -- which will send me a message .  I followed microsoft instructions Performance logs and alerts and it does not send me a message.  I have a counter for the logical disk for free space. -- I also selected the send a network message box -- to administrator or ip address of server -- it did not send a message.

thanks!!

Download it from

You have an alert setting to receive a mail when there is low disk space as defined by you.

one more thing -- I just changed from sending a message to sending  a log to the application log in event viewer and it works.

I still don't know why the message will not show on the screeen ??

Thanks

I just don't understand why it will send me a console message

All i want to do is have the server display a message to me so i won't have to keep checking disk space on the server

With Spiceworks you can put in your email address and you will receive mails when there is low disk space in any of the machines.
