    I have some 80g drives I use for storage. They are full to capacity, recycle bin disabled for them and perhaps anywhere from 1-5mb left. Each time I start XP, I get tray icons telling me they are full and when I click the icons I get a Disk Cleanup window.

    How can i disable that for those drives?

    The only fix I know of involves editing the registry so do so at your own risk and don't blame me for anything :)

    you need to goto


    Create a DWORD called DisableLowDiskSpaceBroadcast

    then depending on the drive letter you need to type in a specific data value i'll list the values for a few drive letters so you can just get it here

    Drive C=4
    Drive D=8
    Drive E=16
    Drive F=32

    Beginning to see the pattern :) hope that helps
