Disable Low Disk Space in XP

"Low Disk Space". Finally got annoyed with Windows XP and the warning balloon window produced when ANY partition reaches less than 200Mb of room remaining? It then gets progressively more annoying, the less space you have remaining.

NOTE: THIS MODIFICATION INVOLVES CHANGING THE WINDOWS REGISTRY.

WHILST WE KNOW OF NO ISSUES INVOLVED WITH THIS CHANGE, THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR YOU TO CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS TO YOUR COMPUTER. WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUCH PROBLEMS. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN USING THE REGISTRY EDITOR.

The warning message might be okay on your root drive, as Windows is probably using this drive to store tempory information and needs some spare room allocated to work properly. However, if you are like me and have a lot of partitions, it means leaving a lot of disk space empty just to keep your sanity. I only know how to turn the warning message off for all your drives and it involves breaking out the Windows Registry Editor.

Disabling Instructions

Open Regedit (Start Menu / Run / Type Regedit / OK)

Browse to (**HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows
CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer)

If NoLowDiskSpaceChecks doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD

Set NoLowDiskSpaceChecks to a value of 1

Log off and then Log back in to be free from the dreaded "Low Disk Space" balloon warning.
