This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Spacewatch gives you a breakdown of the total space available on your server right from your dashboard by appending a small progress bar right to the At a Glance widget.

You can also completely configure the notification email:

  • Receive daily alerts regardless of warning level
  • Receive daily alerts once you have 41%-60% free space remaining
  • Receive daily alerts once you have 21%-40% free space remaining
  • Receive daily alerts once you have 0%-20% free space remaining


  • The dashboard widget fits in with any theme and will change color based on your warning level. Hovering will show you the free space currently available.
  • Email notifications can be enabled or disabled from the Tools > Spacewatch options page.
  • This is what the notification email looks like. The Spacewatch Robot cares.


  1. Upload the spacewatch folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate spacewatch through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. (optional) Enable the At a Glance dashboard widget

Once you’ve completed those steps, you will be able to view the Spacewwatch widget right from your dashboard


I don’t see the progress bar on my dashboard… where is it?

Make sure that you have enabled the At a Glance dashboard widget. Once you’ve activated it, the progress bar will be appended to it right after the post counts.

I found a bug! What do I do?
