  1. Using the left side of the Registry Editor, navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

  2. Right-click in the right pane and select New Key.

  3. Name the new key Explorer.

  4. In the Explorer key, right-click in the right pane and click New DWORD (32-bit) Vaue.

  5. Name the DWORD NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

  6. Right-click the new DWORD and click Modify.

This will prevent Windows Vista from checking the space on your hard drive and popping up the notorious "Hey, you''re running out of space!" warning balloon.
