Tha low disk message is usually due to not properly removing the old USB
drive from the system - did you just yank the cable? It could also be an
artifact of the old drive getting full.
As far as the missing perf report goes I doubt it is related, sometimes they
just need to be reset. You can check the report task in scheduled tasks
control panel for an error or just rerun the wizard.
Also note that a reboot will clear up the first issue and maybe the second.
