While Microsoft has come a long way with its tech updates from time to time, there are some things that can be really annoying. One of these is the “low disk space” warning which warns you when your hard drive is nearly full or running out of space. While this can be useful for many who don't keep track of their disk space, the continuous reminder can be frustrating over a period of time.

The balloon notification with the disk space warning is scheduled for a specific duration for each version of Windows. For Windows 10, it's set to appear every ten minutes with the notification visible for ten seconds. The pop-up can display any of the following alerts at three different levels:

  • You're running out of disk space
  • You have very little disk space
  • You have run out of disk space
