[mythtv-users] Avoiding hard disk full messages

I am running a combined front end/ back end on mythbuntu 10.10, mythtv 0.24.

The primary hard disk is 2T.

Recordings are marked to expire. In any case, there are no current 

Video files that are archived are archived to another HDD.

This morning I am greeted by hard disk full messages.

Is there any way to avoid this? If not, what am I supposed to delete 
when there are no visible files to delete?

Also, is there a way to tell mythtv to reserve a certain amount of free 
hard disk space?

NB: the HDD is healthy.
