    How do you remove the graphic which shows disk usage on a network drive?

    Hi.

    I'm finding it hard to explain this one, but basically the network drives show a blue or red bar, depending on how much capacity there is on their respective server.

    I'm a bit worried that if students see an almost full red-coloured bar, they'll see it as a challenge to try and fill the disks.

    Does anyone know of way in which to remove the coloured bar and also to remove the 'xxGB free of xxTB' message?

    Thanks.

    Not sure you can remove it but you might want to look into quotas to stop the 'challenge'.

    The one way you can do this is to change the 'view' of my computer so it isn't 'Tiles'. Another thing you could do is introduce quotas, which then hides the actual server hard drive capacity.

    We've tried quotas, but as soon as the students hit their limit we get overruled by the teachers.
    Changing the view is a decent shout - thanks

    Changing the view to medium/large icons works a treat, although if you hover over the drive it will still tell you it's capacity. Its a decent fix though.
