I have only 45GB of free diskspace left, but I can easily put 200GB in the nntpgrab queue. Probably at the most inconvenient moment possible this will lead to a massive disaster that can only end in an enormous explosion and a giant fireball.

Maybe nntpgrab could give a little warning when there's more stuff in the queue than diskspace is available?

Note, I didn't implement this feature request, I only made a patch with some code which can be used.

I made a small patch so it is possible to get the total and remaining disksspace.
I also added this to the jsonrpc plugin. Maybe not the best code but it works for me ;)
I think it would be nice to show the total/available space in the webinterface!

It doesn't work for linux, it will always say "invalid request" but I think the request is OK. I think that there is a parse bug when there is a "/" in the request or something. haven't found out why yet.

You can get the result and when you divide the result by 2^30 (1073741824), you get the space in GB.
If you wan't the space in MB you can divide the result by 2^20 (1048576).

Thanks for the patch!
This will help implementing this feature for sure.
I'll try to merge this patch and implement the rest of this feature for the 0.8 release of NNTPGrab.

Can you also add two missing return statements? I forget them in this patch.
Line 1664 and 1697, sorry.
