This configuration parameter specifies the minimum volume of disk space required on the partition containing the offline spool file before spooling stops.

You can set this value as a percentage of the disk space, or you can set it as an exact size. To set the value as an exact size, specify the unit value after the number value. The unit values are not case-sensitive.

For example, to set the minimum volume of disk space to 28 gigabytes, you would enter the following:

spool.diskspace.min: 28GB 

You can specify the following unit values:

  • B (byte)
  • KB (kilobytes)
  • MB (megabytes)
  • GB (gigabytes)
  • TB (terabyrtes)

To specify the value as a percentage, you can either use the percent (%) symbol, or enter a number with no unit value. If you specify a number, make sure that there isn't a space between the number and the unit value; for example, to specify 28 gigabytes enter "28GB" not "28 GB". Including a space, such as "28 GB", is interpreted as a percentage, such as "28%".

The default value is 10 percent of disk space.

You can also set this parameter using group policy.
