I got tasks erroring out with "Maximum disk usage exceeded", while I set Boinc to 10GB max and still having 300+ GB free on disk.

Do I need to allocate more disk space?

I don't think so. The tasks are probably erroring when they use more disk than an internal limit set inside the task. So nothing you can do about it. At least that is my interpretation about the situation. I have also several of those tasks on multiple hosts.

Ok, thanks. Just wanted to mention it because all other LHC workunits completed fine before and these errored out. Hope the project can use this information to fix it.
