Put a 1GB file on the disk. When the server stops after running out of
disk space, delete that file, restart the server, and make plans to
buy more disk space -- SOON.
You can also us PerfMon to send an alert when disk space falls below X
amount, but if that happens when nobody's there to do anything about
it and the disk fills up, you're still out of luck.

If the optimizer dies while copying the file you've got hardware
If you move the file without the assistence of Exchange you'll break
the link between the log files and the databases. Providing the
databases are consistent when you move them this won't be a big
problem IF you make a "normal" on-line backup immediately after you
restart the server.
Once you move the databases, you'll have to alter the registry to tell
Exchange where you placed the files.
