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.


When you try to uncompress a DoubleSpace-compressed drive, DoubleSpace may not uncompress the drive without generating an error message.


If you map a network drive over a DoubleSpace host drive, DoubleSpace cannot uncompress the drive and fails to display an error message.

For example, if your DoubleSpace-compressed drive is D, its host drive is I, and you have a network drive assigned I, you cannot uncompress drive D.


To work around this problem, disconnect from the conflicting network connection before you uncompress your DoubleSpace-compressed drive(s).
