Low Disk Space Warning


Willy The Wuss

I have a seperate hard drive that I just use for my swap file, but Windows keeps popping up a message saying there is low disk space on that drive (which there is, but thats all it is to be used for). Is there a way to keep this message and icon that shows up in the system tray from showing up?


From Windows XP Inside Out:

tip - Shut down "low disk space" messages


When you’re running low on disk space, Windows displays a warning message in the notification area at the right of the taskbar. Clicking on the balloon opens the Disk Cleanup utility and allows you to clean out unwanted files. If you’d prefer not to see these messages, you can disable them globally by adding a value in the registry (unfortunately, this option cannot be used only on specific drives). Open Registry Editor and select the following key:


Choose Edit, New, DWORD Value, and name the new value NoLowDiskSpaceChecks. Set the data value to 1. Close Registry Editor to apply the change.

Windows will no longer display these warnings.

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
