Hello Magsood, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure what you mean. The red bar for your C: drive indicates that it is low on free space and you need to do something about it before it runs out of space. The only way to not have the red bar is to either get a larger HDD, shrink space from another partition to add to the C: partition, or start deleting or uninstalling anything you do not want on the C: drive.

Could you please clarify what you are wanting to do?

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Well, there use to be this option below to change the percentage, but it doesn't work in Windows 7. I'm not sure it's possible to change the default 10% anymore.

Not sure why you would want to change it 5% it's full already at 10% free, it probably won't let you install anything now. The OS needs alittle space in order to operate.

There are alternatives to changing the color.
Run disk cleanup to free up space.
Disable or turn off hibernation if you don't use it. That will delete the hiberfile.sys file and free up some space.
Turn System Restore off or clean up/delete your old restore points. Disk cleanup will do the cleanup for you.
Move your user profile or just your documents, pictures etc to another drive.
All of the above can be found here.

C drive is not the Problem!
Another drive is 450 GB in size
45 GB Remained is the red!

10% of 450 Gb is 45 GB, so it's doing what it's suppose to be doing and warning you that you only have 10% of your HDD's space left before you run out. There's just no way to change that.

Yes that is the 10% free space warning in Windows 7. This is to protect users from accidently deleting files. As stated you will need to use some space on those other drives/partitions.
