I keep getting "WARNING: Personal storage file getting full, strongly recommend you resize it or delete files!" message shown which indicates that my puppy save file is getting full, i know the solution is to delete some files or resize personal save file, but i don't want to do either, because i don't want to lose my files and i don't have anymore storage left to resize.
Can i disable it ?

Edit the file /usr/local/pup_event/frontend_funcs.

There are 2 lines in this file (for different pupmodes), that read
if [ $SIZEFREEM -lt 10 ];then

Change them to
if [ $SIZEFREEM -lt 2 ];then

This will reduce the threshold for the warning message from < 10 MB to less than 2 MB free space. Since the count is made in full MB I think this means you have only 1 MB left. Getting further down to zero will leave you with a frozen system... Crying or Very sad

Caffeinfix, if you have a DVD burner in your computer, you could run Puppy from a multisession DVD. This would expand your Save file options.

Forum member Ted Dog was working on a USB flash Puppy that saves in sessions the same way a multisession DVD does. I seem to recall that he actually got it to work, at least somewhat. See here for more.

What size is the USB drive?
What are you doing that needs a lot of storage space?
