You need to start with capacity planning. Here are the concepts:

First, get the growth rate from historical data (statspack or AWR), and exprapolate from there as to future disk capacity. They have spreadsheets for that:

Francisco,

Disk is cheap, I would get at least a 100 gig mirrored set of high-quality disks.

You want to see how much free space exists within each tablespace, and you query the dba_free_space view for this.

Once you attach the new disk, use the "alter tablespace xxx add datafile xxx" syntax to extend the tablespaces (unless it's using ASM, of course).
