low disc space partition color

Hi Guys,

I have a quick newby question for Windows 7 RTM (64bit).. it's not a major problem or anything like that but more of an annoyance!

Is there a way in which to stop Windows changing your partition color to red when the drive is low on space?

Regards
Tylor

Why would you want it to...?
Its there for a reason. And to stop it, add more disk space.

The reason I want to is simply for cosmetic purposes, the drives/partitions in question are simply for storing media. Therefore no apps/user settings or user data are stored on there. I do not need 7 to tell me I have 20gig left on a partition when it's clear to see from Windows Explorer.

I realise the feature has a purpose, my question was simply to see if this could be turned on/off

I doubt it. You may be able to change the color from the registry, but I don't know how.

I really want to to change the colors of the 'percentage full indicators' from those ugly vista colors to my own choice. It would be also nice to change the settings of the percentages, cause on a 125 gb partition the indicator already turns red, with still 15 GB free. I think the warning must be relative/ adjustable
