The Meerkat application was designed to send admins an email alert whenever a disk runs low on free space. Written in C# .NET, Meerkat is a tiny unintrusive service configured by a separate small GUI. From the GUI you can set which disks to monitor, the free space threshold, who to notify, and the location of an SMTP server.
Why write another disk space checker when there's already quite a few out there? I guess there are two categories of checkers - suites like What's Up Gold that perform all sorts of checks and cost plenty of cash, or shareware apps that do exactly what Meerkat does but ask you to pay for it. I couldn't find anything that was simple, small and free. So I wrote Meerkat, and it's been monitoring a variety of servers in the workplace and at home for almost a year now.
