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 have duplicate files or directories on your compressed drive and host drive, you receive a message instructing you to read a DBLSPACE.LOG file when you attempt to uncompress a drive. The DBLSPACE.LOG file may be a zero-byte file.
If the host drive has zero bytes free, the DBLSPACE.LOG file is created as a zero-byte file when DoubleSpace tries to write the DBLSPACE.LOG file.
NOTE: If the host drive is write protected, the DBLSPACE.LOG file cannot be created.
To work around this problem:
- Run DoubleSpace, decrease the size of the DoubleSpace-compressed drive, and then run DBLSPACE /UNCOMPRESS. -or-
- Free up some space on the host drive by moving files to another drive and then running DBLSPACE /UNCOMPRESS.
