APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.0 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.2 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.22 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q100373

This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.

SYMPTOMS

Central Point Software (CPS) BootSafe reports the following error message after you install MS-DOS 6 or 6.2, or when you resize your DoubleSpace- compressed drive:

W A R N I N G

Partition / Boot Sector was Modified

CAUSE

This situation occurs because the BIOS parameter block (BPB) is rewritten when you install MS-DOS and when you resize a DoubleSpace-compressed drive.

BootSafe stores BPB information in a hidden-system file called BOOT.CPS. When BootSafe sees the BPB has changed, it displays the above error message.

WORKAROUND

To work around the situation, choose Update when you receive the warning message from BootSafe.

MORE INFORMATION

BootSafe is manufactured by Central Point Software, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
