How to Enable or Disable the “Low Disk Space” Warning on Windows 11/10?

Usually, Windows 11/10 checks the memory space every 10 minutes. If it detects that the disk space on your computer is less than 200 MB, you will receive a warning from the Windows system: low disk space, or you are out of disk space on the local hard drive.

When you run out of space on your hard drive, you may receive a pop-up warning that says you are running out of space on local disk X. If there is not enough space on the mentioned drive, you will receive this warning message over and over again. This risewindows article will show you how to enable or disable the low memory warning in Windows 11/10.

How to Enable or Disable the “Low Disk Space” Warning in Windows 11/10?

If you feel you are running out of disk space, you might want to clean up some disk space. When you receive the “Low Disk Space” warning message in the notification center, you should pay attention to it. If possible, you should immediately fix these issues by moving bigger files to an external hard disk. And if you get this warning message about your operating system drive (typically drive “C”), you should free up the “C” drive as soon as possible. Many software may not function correctly, and even your operating system may crash due to insufficient disk space. However, you can ignore the notice if the warning is about a non-system drive.

To turn on/off the “Low Disk Space” Warning in Windows 11/10, use the following steps:-

Step 1. Firstly, open the Registry Editor.

Step 2. Now, when Registry Editor opens, navigate to the following folder from the left side pane:-


Step 3. Then, right-click on the Policies folder in the left sidebar and select New > Key. Then name the newly created key as Explorer.

Step 4. Then, right-click on the Explorer key and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name it as NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

Step 5. Next, double-click on the NoLowDiskSpaceChecks entry on the right-side pane to modify its settings. Set the “Value data” as:-

  • 0: Enables Low Disk Space warning.
  • 1: Disables Low Disk Space warning.

Step 6. Then, click the OK button.

Step 7. Lastly, reboot your computer or laptop to apply the changes.

Also, you can use above mentioned guidelines on Windows 7 and Windows 8 also to enable or disable the “Low Disk Space” warning message.

That’s it for the article.
