APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q101564

SYMPTOMS

DoubleSpace may be unable to convert a Stacker 3.0-compressed hard disk drive if a floppy disk drive is identified as a Stacker- compressed drive in the CONFIG.SYS file. In this case, the following error messages may occur when you run the Stacker conversion:

  • Drive A: is not a Stacker drive.
  • DoubleSpace was not able to convert your Stacker drives to DoubleSpace format.

Because the conversion was unsuccessful, Stacker remains installed on your system. Press ENTER to reboot your computer and reenable Stacker.

CAUSE

These errors occur if you identify a floppy disk drive on the Stacker device line in your CONFIG.SYS file. For example:

   device=c:\stacker\stacker.com c:\stacvol.dsk a:
                

RESOLUTION

To correct this problem, remove the reference to your floppy disk drive from the Stacker device line in your CONFIG.SYS file. For example:

   device=c:\stacker\stacker.com c:\stackvol.dsk
                

Now, run the Stacker conversion again.
