This can be achieved using two methods:

dconfig Editor

In dconf Editor navigate to org/gnome/desktop/notifications/application/org-gnome-nautilus/

Then set enable off using the slider.

If not already installed, you can install dconf Editor with the following command in terminal:
sudo apt -y install dconf-editor

Settings application

Settings > Notifications > Files

Turn off Notofications and/or Notification Popups as required.
