Right-click on the VM -> Alarms -> New Alarm Definition -> Trigger: VM Total Size on Disk -> Action: Send a notification email

You can also use Veeam One, Spiceworks, Nagios, Zabbix... They will monitor it for you too.

thank you helloThere.  
will try and let you know.
I tried your advice but could not figure it out in VCenter 6.5.   Could you specifically provide with examples:
Right Click the VM > New Alarm Definition> Will it be Specific Condition  oR > Specific Event occurring on this object
Please will appreciate if you give me specific example for a VM having 2 HDs

Many thanks.
