Why is my department share displayed as red?
This is a default Windows indicator that a drive has dropped below the 10% free space threshold. For network shares on ADHAYFNP02 it does not stop users from writing/saving to their folders. Nor does it mean they are hitting their quota. Our Server Team is aware of the situation and users can safely ignore the “red”. They can also be assured that they won’t be stopped from using the folder.
For local drives such as the C: Drive, please clean up old and unwanted files to make space. See article on Disk Cleanup.
Note: This is by architecture; unfortunately there is no option to change the percentage for the low space warnings.
Microsoft Windows displays the "red" usage bar when the space available on a drive falls below 10% of the total drive.
