Hi Emiliano,

we have this right now: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Designs/Frame#03 So
in the 8.2.0 release you can trust to have an indication of how much
space is available.

About having a notification to popup when space runs low, you should
enter a enhancement request in trac. Perhaps too late to get in 8.2.0
but could be in a later release for sure.
