Thanks for all your answers.
The thing is we're having some trouble here in Uruguay with xos that run out
of disk space. Kids download lots of activities, take lots of pictures and
videos and they manage to use all free space they have. When that happens,
it seems that sugar won't load in some cases or takes too long to do it.
That's why we want to give some kind of warning when they have used, I don't
know, 95% of disk space or so, so they can delete some stuff before
We'll try to figure out something, but help will be appreciated!
