The following disk is low on free disk space. Low levels of free disk space can cause performance problems and prevent users from saving files on the disk.

Drive Letter: HarddiskVolume10
Free Disk Space: 0.000000. MB
% Free Disk Space: 0.000000.%

You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

This occurs because a USB Hard Drive was removed from the server without using Safely Remove Drive.

You can sometimes stop the warnings from occuring by opening up Device Manager and displaying hidden devices to delete the phantom USB Drive.  But if you don't see it there, then rebooting the server resolves the problem.

Unfortunately that's the best fix there is at the moment.

Is there any KB or TechNet articles about this, on Microsoft's web site.

I could not find any. When I searched the Microsoft websites.

Cheers,

No, there isn't... but there are plenty of SBS Public Newsgroup posts about it that have been responded to by Microsoft Support Engineers:
