When any drive on your computer has less than 10% free disk space, a “Low Disk Space” warning will pop up at the bottom right side of the screen constantly. If this warning is not about the system (C:) drive and you want to get rid of it, here is a registry tweak to disable the annoying “Low Disk Space” warning in Windows 10 / 8 / 7.

How to Disable “Low Disk Space” Warning in Windows 10 / 8 / 7

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run command box, type “regedit” (no quotes) and press Enter.

  2. This should open the Registry Editor window. Navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Right-click the blank area on the right pane and select New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value.

  3. Name the value NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and double-click it to modify. In the Value Data box, type “1” (no quotes) and click OK.

  4. Close Registry Editor and restart your computer, Windows will stop giving you low disk space warnings. If you want to turn on the low disk space notifications later, just right-click on the NoLowDiskSpaceChecks value and delete it.
