You will lose data, possibly everything, on the hard drive if you run out of space on it. I would recommend backing up your data and getting a bigger hard drive soon, or make more room on the drive by uninstalling stuff you do not need anymore.

This is not the same as a Low Memory error. A Low Memory error is usually due to the page file being turned off, or it's Min and Max size set to low.

as warning...

Now right click the Explorer and choose New > DWORD (32bit) Value and name this as NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

Now Double click it and set its value to 1.

Click OK and that’s it, now log off your computer and login back, you will no longer see the low disk space alerts.
Follow these steps. It takes 2 minutes.

If you want to PERMANENTLY get rid of the message, my steps work.

However, you will never get a notification letting you know your hard drive is running out of space. The warning in the tutorial is just letting you know it is NOT a good idea to shut the notification off, because filling up a hard drive can cause damage to it.

Can I offer another suggestion? Stop over-partitioning the bejesus out of your drives, and consolidate. You'll have more "free space" to play with. Your screenshot gave me a migraine, with two OSes and multiple small partititons. Simplify it, use one OS and virtualize the other, if you really need two, and consildate your drives.
