Full HDD warning

i have a storage hdd and there are like 71mb free on it nad every time i restart i get the warrning that it is almost full, is there anyway to disable it on that drive since it does not matter that much???


Open regedit and create a new DWORD value called NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and set it to 1 under either

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer]
this will disable the message for all users
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer]
to disable it only in your account.
double click my computer right click the drive, select properties.

See what is says is total and what is free.

If it says the total is not 71 gig then the partition does not use the whole disk. You need to adjust the partition size. Partition magic can do this without data loss (most of the time) or windows administrative tools can do it (not sure if windows will wipe the existing data though).

If the drive total is 71 gig then your file allocaiton table may be corrupted or you may have a humongous bad file.

double click my computer right click the drive, select properties then tools then check now. It will probably tell oyu it can't and you have to restart to check. Restart if it says that. It may say bad "stuff" found. It will save the junk to a file called file000x.chk in the root directory, something like that. (My memory is going
from old age.) Then delete that file Note it may be humongous!!


canadian_divx are you asking if there is a way to disable the warning only for that drive? At least no way that I know of.

LeeJend from what I understand the drive is really almost full. It says 71 megabytes free.

If you want to get rid of the drivespace warning for just your user profile, then make the edit that yoyo gave you only under the Current User key.

im pretty sure theres an option in gpedit to not notify users of low disk space:)

[EDIT] but if you aint got pro you can just forget what i said:cool:

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
