    Is there any way to get rid of the pop-up warning that keeps (on and on and on) warning me that I am getting low on disk space? I've had at least two computer savvy techs to tell me that the warning has something to do with the way Win 10 partitions. They both checked my laptop and tell me that I have plenty of disk space. It's just annoying that it keeps popping up.

    It sort of depends on which partition it is. There are some small, around 450 MB recovery partitions, which are having a erroneous drive letter placed on them and cause problems. If that is your situation, yes, very easy to correct.

    Sometimes it's the system restore partition which is usually small and sometime people have issue when they accidentally copy file there.

    Try this fix by DaveM from the Microsoft forum:
    It is the recovery drive, you are not meant to see it, it is not meant to have a drive letter, remove the drive letter and everything will return to normal:

    Click your Start Button, type cmd, then right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

    Run this command and hit Enter

    diskpart

    Run this command and hit Enter

    select volume X (replace X with the drive letter of the recovery drive/drive that’s showing as full).

    Run this command and hit Enter

    remove letter=X

    Close Command Prompt and the problem will be resolved . . .
