Low disk space warning is a message that pops out from task bar when the hard drive is running out of space. It reminds users to do something to free out some disk space or add some free space to the hard drive. If users ignore this warning and keep writing data to it, some day the computer will quit.
Then under what situation will the low disk space warning appear? To be specific, when the free space of a specific partition is lower than 10% of the total storage space, that partition will present itself with a red bar.
