What do you mean by "setting up alters"? Do you mean "alerts" when the files are nearing max size?
Or when the free space on the drive is getting low?

You can set up alerts under the SQL Server agent, I believe the type is "SQL Server Performance Condition Alert" and it will allow you to set thresholds for each database. I can't remember if the value counter allows a percentage or if it needs to be a literal value. You should be able to find that out in BOL

Ranzz,

Take a look at this post. It has some code you can use and shows some examples of alerts.

Use something like this script to monitor the size and free space of the files.
Setup a job that runs everyday/week insert into a database to monitor/track over time, send you an email or both.

SELECT
[name]
, [physical_name]
, CAST(([size] / 128.0) AS decimal(18,2)) AS FileSizeInMB
, CAST((fileproperty([name],'SpaceUsed')) / 128.0 AS decimal(18,2)) AS SpaceUsedInMB
, CAST((([size] - fileproperty([name],'SpaceUsed')) / 128.0) AS decimal(18,2)) AS FreeSpaceInMB
FROM sys.database_files

Instead of constantly trying to adjust the max size, I'd suggest setting the max to "UNLIMITED", then monitoring and alerting for every file growth occurence instead.

SQL DBA,SQL Server MVP(07, 08, 09) Prosecutor James Blackburn, in closing argument in the Fatal Vision murders trial:
If in the future, you should cry a tear, cry one for them [the murder victims]. If in the future, you should say a prayer, say one for them. And if in the future, you should light a candle, light one for them.
