Description of the Low Disk Space Notification in Windows XP
(and how to turn it off)

My thoughts are.......
In Windows XPs NTFS file system, one Sector on the harddrive
amounts to 4,000 bytes. If a file is 1,000 bytes in size,
then that file will take up a full Sector, and you will lose

If a file is 40,001 bytes in size, the it will use 11 Sectors,
and you will lose 3,999 bytes of space.

Right click on a file,
then click Properties,
then look on the General tab,
you will see two pieces of information, "File size", and "Size on Disk".
"File Size" might be 100 bytes, and yet
"Size on Disk" would be 4,000 bytes.

There are a number of places where the disk space is in use.

First off empty the recycle bin, or better yet download and use regularly Ccleaner slim. Link below.

Next, check how much of your drive is being used for Windows Restore files.

Third, check to see that you are letting WinXP configure the swap file. Right click on My Computer and choose properties> advanced> performance settings> advanced> Virtual memory> change. Select System Managed size and click set> apply> OK> OK> Reboot.
