Windows 7: Changing the Disk Space Bar "Low Level"

Changing the Disk Space Bar "Low Level"

In Explorer on Computer, is there a way to change the number of gigabytes or percentage that Windows uses before it changes from the blue bar to red? For instance, I have an array that is 1TB, but it still has over 15GB free on it, but Windows interprets that percentage as the drive being low, so the bar appears red.

To me, I don't want that bar red unless there is say, 5GB remaining, or maybe even 1GB. 15GB still goes a long way, even though it is a small fraction of 1TB.

Ideas?

15Gb out of 1Tb would be considered low to me.

Mathematically speaking, yes... but on a drive where I'm storing small files, that could go quite a long ways.
