Hello Everyone,

Is it possible to change hard drive space color to blue when it shows red?.
I have a costumer who finds it annoying, he has a 8 TB disk and has over 700GB free space but shows red because low space.

I really appreciate any help you can provide,

Marcos Santo

You cannot change the color as it is a hard coded warning message and since it is set to a 10% of drive space for this purpose, on a large 8TB drive it is kind of useless.
Is the client getting popup messages about low drive space as well?
You can remove the bars through the registry. There is a comment on the MS Community site explaining how to do this.
Scroll down to Petru Maxians comment or this info.

I have been looking for this solution 2-3 years ago as well. But did not find any. The only option was to remove these annoying bars. As quoted above.
