New dual boot with 98 and XP Home on c: drive, have slave drive with about 800 megs free. XP keeps politely telling me that drive D is low on space. I don't care.....I'm not planning on putting anything more on it. Is there anyway to get rid of this irritating 'reminder?'

Hi there:)

Have ago at this

Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).

Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer.

If it's not there, create a DWORD value and call it NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

Double-click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks, and enter the value 1, and press OK.


Hope this helps:)
