How do I disable the “You are running out of disk space” notification?

How do I disable the “You are running out of disk space” notification?

Straight forward question. I want to disable the “You are running out of disk space” notification. I have all notifications turned off in Dropbox, yet I'm still seeing this. I do not want to see this notification, is it possible to turn it off? I do NOT want to hide the icon in the the system icon tray as I like to always see what is running, but I don't need to see this notification ever.

Info: Standard Dropbox account, running in Windows 7.

Please note that this question is about disabling the notification and nothing else.

That's unfortunate, thank you!

Just use the Selective Sync in Dropbox Preferences. Check the folders you want to show in your computer, and uncheck the folders you want to remove from the computer hard drive(these folders will not occupy the storage space on your hard drive), then the "You are running out of disk space" warning will be gone.

 

Good Luck.
