Hi Guys,

Currently in a very large network we have users constantly using mapped network drives.

Our issue is that users are constantly complaining or worrying because the bar below network drives shows red if there is less than 10% free on the drive.

This is normal as the locations do not require much free space.

Does anyone know how to either remove the amount of disk space shown on the network drive, or remove the red indicator?

We can deploy via GP or script for registry edit etc.

Thanks in advance,
Matt

Copy the following lines and paste them into a text file. Change the extension from .txt to .reg. Double-click (single click) the file to merge the contents into registry. After you restart or log off-log back on, you will not get the warning, hopefully. The registry change will force Windows to not check the remaining space on the hard disk.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001
