Windows 7: My Computer, HDD Fill Lines, Tourquoise versus Red ?

My Computer, HDD Fill Lines, Tourquoise versus Red ?

In My Computer, (arrived at via keystroke: Windows Key-E,) what is the significance of the different colored lines indicating how full the hard disk drives are?

The colors I see are tourquoise and red.


Based on a sample too small to be conclusive, I suspect red means the hard drive is full beyond a certain point. If that's the case, at what point does the line become red, is that point adjustable, and are there any other customizable aspects of this function?

Mine show as all dark blue. Never seen red or turquoise. I'd guess you are right about them being warning levels.

Red might show at the 90% full level? I wouldn't expect it to be adjustable. When drives get full beyond a certain point, they are more difficult to defragment. It's just an indicator that you may need to get another drive or delete stuff from the existing drive.
