  • Add a new trigger on the Triggers tab.
  • Select "On an event" in the "Begin the task" box.
  • Set Log to "System", Source to "srv", and Event ID to "2013".

  • Add a new action on the Actions tab.

  • To configure when the low disk space event is recorded in the System Log, open the Registry Editor, navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters and add a DWORD value named “DiskSpaceThreshold”, setting it to the desired percentage. When the entry does not exist, the default value is 10.
