FSGuard - xfce4-fsguard-plugin

The FSGuard panel plugin checks free space on a chosen mount point frequently and displays a message when a limit is reached. There are two limits: a warning limit where only the icon changes, and an urgent limit that advise the user with a message. The icon button can be clicked to open the chosen mount point. The amount of free space is visible in a tooltip.


Open the properties dialog of the plugin (right click on the plugin) to customize its display.
