  1. You can try this by running regedit:

    Find this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    and this key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    add a dword name: NoLowDiskSpaceChecks

    and the value is 1.

    Reboot your PC for the change to be effective.
    You should not get the message again.

  2. You're better off cleaning files you don't need. I like to have at least 1GB of free space on the drive... XP seems to get cranky with anything less. It helps if you have a fixed-size pagefile as well... that way XP doesn't fill up the free space you have with it's pagefile.

  3. Cheers boot that worked great. And zoron im gonna try that page file thingy. The drive it was having the warnings over was a partition i use to store all my tv series on so deleting the page files shouldnt cause any harm. thanks
