Can I disable Disk Cleanup tray notifications?

  • Thread starter LaughingClam

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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
