It's useful to have the plugin know on what partition the folder is, and
then look at the free space on that partition.
Normally you know where the path for something important is (spooldir
for the mailserver?) based on it's path, and not on it's drive. What the
heck... some drives on windows don't even have a letter! So you want to
monitor that: "the partition where this folder is located doesn't run
out of space".
Please take into account that c:\mail can be a mounted partition in
windows, so free_space(C:\) != free_space(C:\mail).
Just my 2 cents
