In the video material it is stated to create PI Archive Spares as a safety net for disk space.  The video explains how to create these archives but not how they are a safety net.


1.  Will PI ever archive to a registered archive labeled "Spare" and if so how would it know to use this spare?

2.  Are there build in disk management operations that warn of impending out of disk space conditions within PI or are you relying on IT disk management tools?

3.  If you get a low disk space notice (regardless of how) do you delete the "Spare" archive to provide sufficient space for PI to build an additional archive before the system runs out of disk space?
