Thread: Low Disk Space

  1. #1
    Hey, I have a secondary hard drive just for my tunes
    it is the 30gb one in my sig
    it has about 35mb free, so it is pretty much filled to the brim, whenever i start my computer I get this:

    There's no errors or anything, just this warning in my system tray, then it won't go away till I click it and then it runs the disk cleanup wizard and tries to free up space, which it doesn't.
    any way I can stop this warning from coming up on startup? other then deleting some of my songs?
    Thanks

    This turns it off on all drives...
    Start the Registry Editor
    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\
    Right-click an empty space in the right pane and select New>>DWORD Value
    Name the new value NoLowDiskSpaceChecks
    Double-click this new value, and enter 1 as it's Value data
    Close the registry editor
    Log off, or restart Windows

    You can also do it with Xteq Systems X-Setup if you don't want to mess directly with the registry.

    Or any of a number of system 'tweakers'.

    2 things , first if you dont have 15% free space on any drive it wont defreg properly

    2nd be very carefull, that message is there for a reason , if you accidently dump another 35+ mg of info on that drive you will find over writen files and more problems than u need , suggest you backup to cdr some of that stuff you dont use all the time and free up some space

    lol I can't be bothered to burn them, cuz I just keep them all on my 30gb hard drive and have a whole playlist of about 6000 songs that just loops over and over, can't do that with mp3 cd's
