Note: As this has been asked many times. It beeps when 98% of your disk is full, so the bigger the disk, the more space there is still left (as it is checked in PERCENTAGE full, not absolute Gbytes).

The box beeps every 8 hours for about a minute, each time three short beeps. Looking into /var/log/server.log I found the following:

  • 09/17 08:00:00 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.

I haven't found this in the manual, but there you go. Indeed I filled filled up my disk already. Here's the system status log, as you can see, the disk full check is run at 00:00, 08:00, and 16:00.

  • 09/18 08:00:00 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.
  • 09/18 00:00:00 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.
  • 09/17 16:00:00 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.
  • 09/17 08:00:00 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.
  • 09/17 00:00:39 Disk 1 is almost full. Continued use will affect file access.
