The setup program for Lucid Lightning disk-caching software does not detect
other disk-caching software, such as Microsoft SMARTDrive version 4.x, if
it is loaded high in upper memory. If disk-caching software is loaded low,
Lucid Lightning disables it. In addition, the installations of Windows 3.1,
Windows for Workgroups 3.1, and MS-DOS 6.0 do not detect third-party disk-
caching software. As a result, running both disk-caching utilities
simultaneously may produce cross-linked files or lost clusters.
To correct this problem, disable one of the two disk-caching utilities
by modifying the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
Lucid Corporation manufactures the following three versions of its
Lightning disk-caching software:
• Lightning version 6.0 for DOS
• Lightning version 1.21 for Windows
• Lightning version 1.1 for CD
To disable any version of the Lightning disk-caching software, modify
the AUTOEXEC.BAT file as follows:
