After you start the Stacker conversion process and DoubleSpace reboots your computer, you may receive the following error message:
This problem occurs when DoubleSpace reboots your computer and there is insufficient memory to convert your Stacker volume file (SVF) to a DoubleSpace compressed volume file (CVF) due to the size of your SVF.
You can work around this problem by using the following procedure:
NOTE: Reboot your computer and try to run the Stacker conversion routine after each step.
- Place DBLSPACE.SYS in a parallel directory on the host drive. For example, if C:\DOS contains your MS-DOS files, and your host drive is D, type xcopy c:\dos\dblspace.sys d:\dos\ at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
- Edit the CONFIG.SYS file and ensure the DEVICE commands for HIMEM.SYS and, if present, EMM386.EXE are placed before the first DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS line.
- Edit the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files and remark out unneeded device drivers and terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs using the REM command.
- Defragment the host drive for the Stacker-compressed drive. To do this:
- Copy ATTRIB.EXE to the host drive.
- Copy DEFRAG.EXE to the host drive.
- Unmount the Stacker-compressed drive.
- Clear the file attributes on the SVF. For example, type attrib -r -s -h stacvol.* at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
- Run DEFRAG /H <host drive> to fully defragment the Stacker host drive.
