Well, the Storage service will stop when the partition is 95% full.  EV will start generating events when the partitions passes 90% unless you disable it from monitoring, which I would NOT recommend.

You would be able to retrieve data, unless you are using collections and don't have enough space to extract the cab file.

Lets just hope you never get to that scenario!

And you can setup roll over partition after ready partition reaches x% size.

Cool, so in this case I do not use EV collections. So I guess in this case with EV collections, the item is compressed to reduce the disk space ?

Well collection does not compress the item, storage archive does compress the item while converting it to saveset. Later collection, collects them to single CAB file for faster backups in future.

Hi,

It will generate the Event ID :

Event ID :4141

Description:
Insufficient diskspace is available on drive { } for the Enterprise Vault to run Enterprise Vault will now be shut down; to correct this problem, delete any unwanted files and restart Enterprise Vault.

Bottom line is, you really don't want your partitions to get past 90%.  EV will alert you once you get to 90% but your storage team should be monitoring the partitions and not let it get that far.

Thanks for the reply Tony, however I wish I had that team, we don't have it in our company.

So I wonder if EV itself actually does sends out email / warning / alert for any issue ?

Events are logged in the event log -- so you'd have to use Event Log Triggers -- I wrote a blog about that.
