To switch the primary channel of the disk sensor to show free GB instead of %,
go to "settings" tab on the sensor and change Primary Channel from the default
"Free Space %" to "Free Bytes (GByte)".

To set warning and alarm, when on the "Overview" tab of the disk sensor, click the cogwheel/gear icon on the "Free Bytes (GByte" channel to edit channel settings.
Choose "Enable limits" and enter your wanted warning and error limits in GB.
Hit "Save" button.

If you only want warning/errors on GB and not on the % channel, remember to disable the limits on that channel.
