disable low disk space warning on windows 2008 SBS?


We are receiving a low disk space warning on our page file partition, drive S.  How can we disable the warning just for this drive? We will not be storing any more data on this drive.  

Full message:
You are running out of disk space on swapfiles (S:)
Free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files
1 Solution
Here is an article from MS
if you dont want to change registry key then
On the drive property choose 'Compress Drive to save disk space'

it will compress the files and space will be created and there will be no longer message prompting for low disk space

Other wise follow below link

You could try reducing the pagefile size? Although this may cause thing to run a little slower...
