Disk status applet is a simple applet for GNOME panel that allow you to monitor the usage of your mounted filesystems. The applet will show a label with the mount point followed by the percentual value of the usage, if the usage is higher than 90%, the value is displayed in red, if the value is lower than 90% but higher than 70%, the value is displayed in yellow, else it will be displayed in green. Also if you go with the pointer of the mouse over these labels, a tooltip will be displayed with additional informations about the mounted file system.
Sources files can be download from the sourceforge download page
