The low disk space pop-up has been happening for the last 2 weeks, and it's been super annoying. I click on it, and it goes away until the next restart. How do I stop it from coming back up again? I mean I know that my Music folder only has 15.7MB left but there is NOTHING I can erase on that drive.
Fixed 31/8/12, I went to the taskbar options, and changed it back to stock, and told it to hide the icon and to stop the notifications. Hmm. Didn't think it would be so simple, lmao. I have to get used to the old standard layout, but it's the price to pay to make this shut up.

I got it! don't fill up your hard drive so full! I'm glad I'm getting a computer engineering degree now.
but really, to clean up your HD perhaps do a clean disk under start > accessories > system tools.

open notepad, then paste this in it
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows Search\\Gathering Manager] "BackOffLowDiskThresholdMB"=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows Search\\Gather] "LowDiskMinimumMBytes"=dword:00000000
after that, save it as, then select all files, then give it any name with a .reg at then end, then run the file.
