This is by architecture; unfortunately there is no option to change the percentage for the low space warnings on the computer.

Late to the party, I know...
I really couldn't care less about the red color of the usage bar, but the associated popup warning dialogs that I'm continually having to clear away whenever I have my 1.5TB USB drive with less than 10% space free (but 100GB still open) connected to the system are killing me.
I'm not talking about the little unobtrusive notification area speech bubble warnings (which I never see anyway). I'm talking about the big low disk space warning dialog that pops up in the center of my primary monitor from time to time -- usually just as I'm trying to do a screen capture video for work, or a LiveMeeting with a client. >8-(
PLEASE tell me there's a way to at least prevent the popup warnings from appearing on top of my active application dozens of times a day, right?
After weeks of searching, I finally discovered that warning was being generated by a Dell OpenManage client. The solution (for *my* problem) was to change a registry key to adjust the "low" threshold from 10% to something more reasonable like 1%. In the end, I found the solution at:
..and the key in question was:
...and of course, I found that solution shortly after finally asking here. Isn't that how it always works? :-)
Hope this helps the next guy who is annoyed with these messages. Now if we could only get Microsoft to implement a similar key for your red bar display problem...
Yeah, I was wondering about that, there was no Windows pop-up on top of applications, I think it was merely a balloon from the notification area bar, your problem did not look Microsoft. Glad you were able to fix it.
Lol, I have 2 3TB drives now, they'll see red when I have "only" 300GB free. This is pretty bad for archive disks that are rather static and tend to be filled to the trim so appear red all the time when it's by design. Oh well.
And why is this thread corrupted and appears all in bold, or is it just me?
Why also many RSS notifications like for this thread are flagged as dangerous by Microsoft Hotmail???
Please MS support people, forward to the relevant persons, I already escalated it to no avail.
