Article ID: 107645

APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11



This article was previously published under Q107645

SUMMARY

Windows for Workgroups version 3.11 caches disk writes by default when the 32-bit file system is enabled. This includes MS-DOS DoubleSpace 6.2 volumes; however, it does not include third-party disk-compression systems.

MORE INFORMATION

To disable write caching with the 32-bit file system, add the following line to the [386Enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI file:

     ForceLazyOff=<drivelist>
                

where <drivelist> is the list of drives in which you want to disable write caching. (Do not use any delimiters or spaces.) For example, the line

     ForceLazyOff=CDF
                

would disable write caching on drives C, D, and F.

For more information about the 32-bit file system, query on the following words in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
