Changing the File Explorer red warning on drive free space

Q: Changing the File Explorer red warning on drive free space

Does anyone know how to change the red warning indicator on free space in Explorer?
I have over 300 GB of free space on a 4TB backup drive and I see that. I'd like to be able to change it to warn when I have, say, 500MB left.

EDIT: I believe it is hard-coded to warn at 10% free, but maybe that number is in the registry somewhere.

Preferred Solution: Changing the File Explorer red warning on drive free space

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Free Space in C: drive is Changing..

Hey man, welcome to the forums! First off, I'd suggest it might be System Restore hogging all your space. What you do is go to START, right click COMPUTER, go to PROPERTIES, then in the left corner, SYSTEM PROTECTION, click Local Disk C: System, then click CONFIGURE. It should look like the attachment. I'll use mine for example. When the system restore uses all its allocated space, it deletes most of it, for some reason to make room for more restore points. Then thats when your memory will be larger. Lemme know how it goes, and I'll see about the rest.
EDIT: Windows seven should use about 12GB btw, so thats where it goes, the more you update, the bigger that gets. Empty your recycle bin, too. Mine collects up to 30GB in a week.

ref Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 Am not entirely sure what Microsoft is thinking but now have been through the process to update  two Win 10 32GB tabs to Windows 10 Anniversary You need over 15GB free to get past the first check but then started getting an error 80070070 "insufficient free space". This continued until I had freed up 18.2GB on disk C. No option to use external disk as with Win 10. This is not for the faint of heart as in the end I was moving whole program directories and "gigantic" files to the D drive (sdCard). However it can be done. Whether the new build is any good is yet to be seen.

When using outlook exp 6.0, I receive this message. I got a solution from one of the other threads. The solution was to zero the count, in the registry, which worked. However, after several days, the same message returns "To free up disk space OE can compact messages". If I go into the registry and set the value to zero, it's fine for a few days, but still returns. Any idea how to make this setting permanent, or is there another solution for this problem? Please help!!!

A:Free Up Disk Space" OE warning

I wouldn't recommend trying. OE needs to compact the messages, for despite the name, it is really deleting messages that you have deleted. I would suggest you read this page, but make note of this line near the bottom of the page: "Do not change the registry just to avoid compaction."

My hdd had Vista, windows recovery, and XP installed on it in seperate partitions (of course), and I deleted XP from its partition when I added a second hdd with XP on it and that old space has become "free space" according to Disk Mgmt.

I would like to add that free space back to the Vista partition, but if I try to "expand volume" of the Vista partition, it won't let me take that free space.
My only choices with the "free space" appear to be either create another "simple volume", or to delete it (as all other options are greyed out) and if I do that Disk mgmt says the partition will be inaccessible.

Is there any way I can add that space to the existing Vista partition ?
Disk Mgmt shows the drive partitions from left to right as dell utilities (and unaccessible)55mb, windows recovery 10gb, Vista 104gb, and then the free space 35 gb.

A:Changing free space ?

Before you try anything make sure you have a reliable means of getting back to where you are now.. like image backup/restore program. The Vista disk management gizmo won't let you do anything until you delete the free space. If it is after Vista in the disk layout then you shouldn't have a problem.

Make sure you backup because it seems hairy when you delete the free space. You'll feel better about chancing it if you know you can get your system back to the status quo.

Imaging programs that actually work are available for $50 or less these days so look around. I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit and I've used Paragon Drive Backup Personal for awhile now. I've done a few restores and I haven't seen a problem. It's easier if you have say an external USB 2.0 HD large enough to hold a bunch of backups(and of course you can park other files too.)

If you can afford to invest a couple hundred bucks for the software and drive then you'll have a reliable image backup/restore system. Esp. if you mess with multi-boot
it's a good idea.

A:How to bring back the amount of free space and used space on a hard drive

I'm a little confused about your question

You can't see how much drive space you have left when viewing your C drive via My Computer, or similar?

If you right-click on My Computer and select Manage, when the new window pops up click on Disk Management from the left hand side. What does that tell you about C drive? Assuming your C drive is actually a hard drive (and not a CD drive or something, though I have never heard of this happening and don't even know if it's possible to have C as your CD drive), you should see details at the top of the screen such as how much space you have left, by percentage of total capacity, as well as GB

Setting up a new box, Vista sadly to say. Installed MS Office XP Pro and get the following error when closing MS Word ONLY. Excel saves without any errors.

The disk is full. Free some space on this drive, or save the document on another disk. Try one of the following:
*Close any unneeded documents, programs, and windows.
*Save the document on another disk.

I've moved the file location and same error. I cleaned up the drive including removing all restore point except the last one.

Now this thing has a 250 gig drive but it is also used for security in a mini mart with 8 cameras. There are about 145 Gigs of video from the security cameras on this box. At this time I am just setting it up, no cameras are connected, and the security program hasn't been set up yet. I just moved the files from the old drive to this one. BTW the old drive crashed.

I've tried the detect and repair in MS Word and no help. I have uninstalled MS Office and reinstalled and no help and even went into Properties and set the user up on quota with no limits and still no help.

So now I am at a loss and have no idea what to try next. Really don't want to delete the security files because it took 6 hours to transfer them to this computer and unless all else fails this isn't a option I want to use.

Now on the old box, which had XP Pro this, was not a problem so on Vista it should not be either but then Vista is a MS Software so this is understandable. Actually, the old box had a 15... Read more

To free up disk space OE can compact messages. This may take a few minutes. There are 2 options - OK and Cancel.

Here is the rub: We've closed the warning, or we've clicked OK, or we've clicked cancel, we've checked the box that says don't ask me again....these warnings continue to come up next time (EVERY time) Outlook Express is closed.

Hi everyone,
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive.

I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on.
That might have been a mistake.

Well, now there's 87.68GB of free space on my hard disk that I can't use and I don't know how to add it back to my c: partition.

There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please?

I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I'm not familiar with partitioning disks. It was just the one time with Ubuntu.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit on a notebook. One 500GB drive partitioned to an OS drive and a data drive.
I run AVAST (paid version), Malware Bytes and unhackme and no viruses/trojans/rootkits discovered - I'm a stickler for security.

I noticed in Windows Exploring that both drives were getting low on available storage (both <8GB). I copied 30GB from the data drive and 10GB from the OS drive to an external drive and deleted the files from the notebook, using shift key/delete. I cleared the Recycle Bin; ran Disk error check (Scandisk) and defragged both drives.

Folder Size & Treesize Pro both tell me I have 180GB & 100Gb respectively free; versus Windows Explorer 5Gb & 6GB.
My available storage only increased by 800MB and 600MB respectively after deleting the files, so for a file removal of 40Gig I get back 1.4gig of HD space.
I've checked pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys [8GB between them] and they haven't altered recently.
Ran CCleaner's Registry cleaner - no difference.

I rang the OS support for my Notebook Manufacturer and spent 1/2 a day trying different things including HD tune. They couldn't figure it out but suggested Utorrent may be grabbing HDD space so I uninstalled it.... no difference.
I've exhausted Google fixes!
Any ideas on how to fix this as I cannot load new software now - says there is not enough room.

I know i just transfered file to it the other day....and no....there is no way i have used up all the space. Only 85 gigs is really used of the 231 gigs..

Any suggestions? Other than format

My NTFS non-system partition is now almost well defragmented. However this applies only to small and medium sized files.

There are still approx 40 big files (> 1 GB) which cannot be defragmented because there is no free single (!) space slot where they fit in.

So I need a way to shift all occupied clusters to get free contigous space on my hard disk.
Currently about 150 GB is be free on my partition but divided into thousand of individual chunks.

I tried now half a dozend of defragmenters.
Sad but true: NO (!) one was able to perform this easy operation.

Can someone recommend me a real defragmenter which is able to perform such a "shift" operation?

Thank you

A:How to shift all free space on hard disk to get contigous free space?

I'm not sure exactly what you have and exactly what you are trying to do.

I personally use Windows 7 built in defrag and have found nothing better.

Windows 7 will put things like Windows 7 wants and needs things put.
The Windows 7 defrag or 3rd party defrag programs doesn't care where you want things put or what order you want them.

As far as I know you will have no control over such things.
You are obviously using a 3rd party defrag tool because you are watching the little colored squares and noticing what looks like free spaces between things. Why things are defragged in the fashion they are I really don't know.
What I do know is Windows 7 defrag put things in the order that Windows 7 wants them and that is what counts.

Hi! I used to be able to burn CDs without any problem...for some reason it doesn't work anymore and I've tried quite a few things after troubleshooting by searching for solutions on-line. When I insert my CD which already has a few files on it, the details shows that there is no free space but yet only 3.43MB of data on it (it should go up to 700MB). I'm therefore unable to burn more data and I've tried the same with a blank CD, it says the same (no free space even though there is nothing on the CD yet). I have already tried uninstalling the driver and it didn't fix the problem.

Hi guys,

I recently acquired a legit copy of windows and i have SP2 installed. However, I end up only having 635 mb of space on C drive. I dunno if this is the forum. If not, mods please move?

I recently had to reinstall windows because of an infection. I reformatted the C drive during installation. Would that have anything to do with it?

Thanks guys!

I need to find out how to free up space on my C Drive. Right now I only have 2% free. I tried to run my disk defragmenter, but I got a warning that it needs 15% in order to run properly. My disk cleanup dosen't seem to work for me either. I'm thinking I should delete or move some stuff on my C Drive, but I'm not sure what the best way is for me to do this. I don't want to accidently delete something important, but I'm sure I have stuff on there that I'm not useing and don't need
I appear to be running 32-bit, Windows 2000 Professional, Service Pack 4v5.0.2195, if this is helpful to know.

I sure would appriciate some info to help me with this, please.

And I was wondering if there is a way that the c drive can be ran with the d drive to have more hard disk space.If not then is there a program that will clean the c drive from all previous programs that have been uninstalled but still take up space that can`t be regained? I have dual prossesor with two hard disk. Windows Vista home premium.

Try using ccleaner (im my signiture) to try and clear up some space. You can combine the D drive but make sure its not a recovery partition. To combine them go to start and look in the search for "disk managment" but make sure you know what you are doing :D

also check the recycle bin make sure that you get rid off all that you dont need

I was having some issues while spending time with some friends via the internet (primarily while playing Left 4 Dead 2), and my computer kept on freezing and locking up. I think it might be due to too much space on my computer being taken up, thus making it to where my computer didn't have enough space to play Left 4 Dead 2. I think I'm attaching a picture of what the My Computer screen looks like.

Yes, I know this isn't a pressing matter, but I do occasionally want to have fun with my family, and this is one of the only ways, as naturally some of my family lives in a different state. Anyway, I need some help, seeing as how I'm not very computer-wise, and have no clue what's going on. Suggestions?

I have an issue that likely has already been covered, yet the solutions I've found / tried have not given me the desired results.

About 4 months ago I had an issue with my C drive filling up. I ran through some solutions such as reducing the amount of space taken up by System Restore, by Recycle Bin. I've cleared out the C:\Windows\Prefetch folder. Not too long ago I was at about 4 Gb of free space. Any software installs are done to the D or F drives but still I'm in the space issue scenario.

Statistics of my Computer:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel Pentium III Xeon processor, x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
Processor Count: 2

The C drive was at 7 Mb of free space, but when I deleted files the free space actually went down. My F drive is an external USB drive.

I only have 7 root folders on my C drive. The Windows folder of course takes up the bulk of the space at 53.5 Gb. The other big one is Program Files at 8.8Gb. Any thoughts on where the space goes? I don't even do anything and the space decreases.

I have the Alienware M14XR2 with an i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz and 12 GB of ram but my C drive is completely filled up. My C Drive has 40.8 gigs of memory total and less than 1 gig is available. I have a solid state drive installed that has more than enough memory for me but it seems like my OS and everything that I have is taking up all the room on my C Drive causing everything to slow down. I'm not tech illiterate but I am not great with computers. With that in mind, what would be the best way to free up space on my C Drive and is there a way to make things download to my D Drive instead of my C Drive. I get messages saying there isn't enough space on my C Drive to install programs which is insanely annoying. I have moved to my D Drive all my music and a few pictures but that didn't free up THAT much space. Help me please...I'm desperate.

A:no free space on drive c

Hello corrina87,

After running the usual apps (disk cleanup,defragmentation) and uninstalling unused

programs you find that you still don't have enough HDD space it maybe time to consider

upgrading or adding another HDD either internally or by an external drive.

It's my first post here and apologies if this has been answered recently; I did a search but didn't find anything. I have a Dell Dimension 8250/Pentium 4 running Windows XP with Service Pack 2. My hard drive is 120 GB and I have it partitioned with my c: being 8 GB, using NTFS format.

The problem is that I only have a few hundred meg of free space on c: even though I do not install any programs nor save any data to it. I have done all the usual things; emptied the recycle bin, deleted temp files, even moved my ServicePack files to another partition. I purchased Partition Magic in the hopes of making c: larger but I get a warning saying that c: may be unbootable if I do so.

SO... I have a few questions:
1) If I increase the size of c: beyond 8 GB, will my drive really become unbootable if using NTFS and Windows XP or is this only a problem with NT?
2) How can I free up more space on c:? Both hubby and I have separate log-in profiles so under c:\documents and settings we both have all sorts of files with application data for various programs that are installed on other partitions. Do these need to stay on c: and if not, how do I move them?
3) Some programs, for example my HP printer driver, do not allow me to choose which drive on which to install, so they end up on c. Is there any way to force these to install onto other partitions?
4) Can I move my Fonts folder to another partition and how do I access it there?

I have heard that c: should b... Read more

Hello guys, I wanna ask something about Windows 7 memory consumption.. We know that Windows provide a feature called Virtual Memory which is a expansion from the Main Memory (physical), and with Task Manager we can see all process within it's memory consumption. And I've found a program called CleanMem from Raymond.cc here.

Is there any program that look a like CleanMem but especially made to free up Virtual Memory? As we know, Virtual Memory always eaten up if we don't close running program for a long time and we can't bring back the used space just like before.

sorry if my English bad...

A:is there any way to free up used space in Page File (Virtual Memory)?

Windows 7 organises memory itself. No other programs are required or desirable.

Regards....Mike Connor
