the key with situations like this is using Warning-/Error-Limits on those sensors, so that they change their state into Warning- or Error-State if a certain value/limit is reached. You can set such Limits on the Channel-Tab of most sensors.
I'm afraid the Disk Sensors do also have limits on their Settings-Tab, which may be a bit confusing, but the reason is simply the limit on the Settings-Tab is then one and the same limit for all drives monitored by a disk sensor, and on the Channels-Tab you can set a different limit for each drive. DIsk, CPU and Memory sensors actually also very often already have these limits pre-set by default, so the sensors will already go into Warning-/Error-State if certain limits are reached (you can of course check the limits or change them), and then all you need is an appropriate State Trigger on those sensors.

best regards.
