Hi, I have an old PPC mac running leopard 10.5.8. I accidentally clicked the "do not warn me about this disk again" box after receiving the "your startup disk is almost full" notification. I want to turn this notification back on so I am warned, but I can't figure out how to do this. Can some one please help? Thanks

I will, but I still want to be warned in the future.....If you don't know why respond?
If you delete enough that the message would go away, it will automatically come back next time you’ve horded too much junk on your drive.

Thought my answer was obvious, my bad.

Good question and the answer is a mystery so far.

As a test, I filled up the startup disk, got the message and checked the box. Later, when I was disconnecting another volume, the message appeared again with the checkbox unchecked. But, the system log file says otherwise...

display_lowdisk_warning: warning for volume 'Macintosh HD' removed

grep -i 'low *disk' /var/log/system.log
