The warning is nothing more than a nuisance if no other software is using that partition for anything.  Don't worry about it.  There is not a problem, other than the warning.  Again if no software is using that partition, then forget it.

Besides removing the low disk space warning, is there anything else I should do to correct this problem.

 If I simply remove the warning can I expect that I will have performance issues with my computer?


That Microsoft web-page removes the warning message for ALL disk-drives, not just the one disk-drive.

Did you reboot after making the change to the Windows Registry?

 

To repeat, use Disk Management to remove the association between the drive-letter and the partition.

As the result, Windows will stop its monitoring of that partition.

Note that there are "hidden" files & folders in that partition -- be sure to show those files, before declaring that the partition is "empty".

 

The only performance issue that you might have is when you nearly-fill your 'C:' drive-letter -- you will not get any warning that your computer is soon to have an issue.  Ditto, when writing files to a USB memory-stick that gets "nearly-full".

Yes, I rebooted after making the changes to the Windows Registry.... and the "Low Disk Space Warning" continues to frequently pop up.

Do the messages stop after using Disk Management to remove the association between the drive-letter and the partition?

I am unsure how to use Disk Management to remove the association per your advice.

 

I attached a screen shot of my computers Disk Management window for reviewdisk_management.jpg

Right-mouse click on the 'E:' partition.

Choose "Change drive letter and paths".

Click to select the 'E:' partition.

Click "Remove" (the association).

When I Right-mouse click on the 'E:' partition a drop down appears that only says HELP on it. 

 

When I click on HELP it takes me to the following link...
