disable low space warning

my drobo is loaded up with 5x 2G drives. i have 960G left, which is still plenty of space, yet the notification area icon is now yellow and it’s complaining that i’m getting low and to add a new drive (not currently possible).

is there a way to disable this meter? or at least change the warning levels? i don’t think 960G is low space at all.


It’s more a percentage of the total drivespace available, rather than a hard number. You have around 8TB of total space, so with 960GB free, you’re at around 12% remaining.

At this point Drobo will start to perform more slowly because of the way the filesystem works. The notification is telling you that performance will be slower unless you add more space.
