    Low Disk Space Notification - Can't Hide Notification


    A few months ago I created a partition on my hard drive. I set the partition size to about 38gGB. Of the 38GB, only about 19MB or so is left. In intentionally left little space. The partition is a copy of all of the date from an old laptop drive.

    My issue is that Windows 8 keeps popping up a warning in the taskbar telling me that the diskspace on that drive is low. Numerous times I've clicked the wrench and changed the notification setting to hide all notification. However, it keeps popping back up. Is there a particular reason that Windows keeps bugging me even when I've already told it to not notify me?
