Need Server 2008 Hard drive monitoring and email notification

I need some sort of monitoring of hard drive disk space (on SBS 2008 and Server 2008) that will notify me when the hard drive space gets dangerously low.

SBS has built-in alerts within the daily monitoring reports, but you could also try a PowerShell Alert:

You can also use FSRM to limit the kinds of files that users copy to the servers drives, limiting their ability to over load with videos and pictures of family pets and vacations, as well as music, none of which serves a business purpose unless you are either in that business or a closely held family business, in which case all bets are off..

You can set these alerts using server manager in the security > network settings.

I use IPSentry which is really easy to use and low cost. It does lots of other stuff as well.

You can also use Spiceworks, which is free.

They have tool that can be added to your automatic reports for space utilization.

I think of all options this is easiest and clearest option with minimal maintenance required to keep operational.
