The disk is at or near capacity. You may need to delete some files.

More Information

By design the event is logged once per drive per occurrence. Therefore, if the free space of drive C dips below the threshold, an alert is logged. Another alert for drive C may not be logged unless the free space goes above the threshold and then dips back down again or the server is restarted.

You can change the DiskSpaceThreshold value to alter the percentage of free disk space available before an alert is logged. The registry parameter is defined as follows:

Value: DiskSpaceThreshold REG_DWORD
Range: 0 to 99 percent
Default: 10 percent
Description: Specifies the percentage of free disk space remaining
before an alert is sent.
To modify the DiskSpaceThreshold value, perform the following steps:
