How do I shut off the low disk space notify

I know I've seen something before on this. The drive I keep my mp3s is down to 14 MB free out of around 4 gig. I am quite aware of this, and comfortable with the situation. Windows XP apparently isn't however, as it feels the need to remind me every 2 minutes via a pop up window that I am running out of space on that drive. How do I shut that f'in notification off, its likely driving me insane.
microsoft

Nevermind, found the answer. If anyone else needs it, insert the following reg entry:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer NoLowDiskSpaceChecks REG_DWORD 1

Having the same problem. How exactly do you 'insert this'? There are multiple options given? Do I add a string value, binary value, DWORD value, multi-string, expandable or key? Thx.

Do an Add Value and it's a REG_DWORD.
