Windows XP: Get rid of low disk reminder

Forwarding from a mailing list:

Windows XP will warn you when one of your hard drives has less than 200MB of free space. It will continue to warn you at predefined intervals, and the balloons will remain open for 30 seconds when you have less than 80MB of space.

If you're well aware that you're low on space and don't want to be repeatedly reminded, click on Start | Run, type Regedit, and click on OK. Browse to HKEY_CURRENT _USER\ Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. If there's no DWORD value there, create a new one called NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

Once you are in the Explorer folder, select Edit from the menu, select New, and choose DWORD value. Now double-click on the new DWORD and assign it the value 1. Log off and log on once more, and you won't receive the warning again. Note that the warning will be turned off for all your hard drives.
