CVF Internal Errors: System Fails to Clean/Interactive Boot

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.


If your DBLSPACE.INI file contains a command to mount a compressed volume file (CVF) that contains internal errors, DBLSPACE.BIN displays the following message:

DoubleSpace found a problem on compressed drive <drive>.

To continue the startup process, press ENTER. Then, correct the problem by typing SCANDISK <drive>: at the command prompt.

If you press either the Clean Boot (F5) or Interactive Boot (F8) keys, your response is taken as a response to the above prompt. (The system does not perform a clean start or an interactive start.)


To work around this problem, press F5 twice to clean boot the system or F8 twice to boot the system interactively.
