The projuct ran for 3 day then complained that it ran out of disk space.
What is the max. disk space required. Just upped it to 100Mbs from 20 Mbs is this enough ?

Guess it is this task reporting a peak disk usage of 10.20 GB:
IIRC the project configures it's task not to use more than 10 GB (per worker slot).
- the VM image which grows during calculation
- the (RAM-)snapshot(s) (8400 MB each) written to the disk each time your BOINC client sends a suspend signal.
Hence, it's unclear what you mean here:
... max. disk space required. Just upped it to 100Mbs from 20 Mbs ...
That task suffered from lots of suspend/resume cycles which did not only overload the I/O subsystem.
They also caused essential network connections to fail:

ATLAS - especially configured as 6-core - might not be the right app for this computer.
You may first try to get a couple of weeks of experience using a 1-/2-core setup or with Theory.
