Hello.

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?

Thanks.

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

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

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!
