A deploy to a dev environment failed today because of low disk space. The Slack task that is supposed to notify us when a deployment fails, also failed for the same reason.

How can we get a notification when a deployment fails because of low disk space?

The step failed: Activity Slack - Notify Dev Deployment Failure on *********** failed with error 'The drive containing the directory 'C:\Octopus\Work\20171012114910-28080-528' on machine '***********' does not have enough free disk space available for this operation to proceed. The disk only has 473,957 MB available; please free up at least 500 MB.

    Nevermind, I think I posted too fast. This probably won't be an issue if I just set the step to run on the Octopus server instead of the deployment target. This process was setup before we had that optioln..
