KAlarm is probably not the only application which can potentially lose data
when the disk becomes full. This is due to the way that files on disk are
updated - unless it's just a case of appending data to the end of a file, when
a file is updated it is completely rewritten in an empty part of the disk and
then the old data is marked as free. This handled by the file system itself,
and it may not be possible to prevent data loss in such cases other than by
creating a new file with the new data, checking whether that succeeded, and
then deleting the old file only if it did succeed. This may not be compatible
with the way that Akonadi (which handles file updates) works. This needs

In the meantime, the best advice it to always keep backups of important data,
and don't let your disk fill up completely.
