DBLSPACE /UNCOMPRESS Doesn't Run ScanDisk After Interruption (103518)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2

Microsoft MS-DOS 6.2 DBLSPACE /UNCOMPRESS supports the same restart functionality that DBLSPACE /COMPRESS does. If the power is interrupted during data-compression or uncompression, DoubleSpace continues appropriately when the power is restored.

However, if the power is interrupted before DoubleSpace starts uncommpressing the drive (during the ScanDisk phase), DoubleSpace restarts after the power is restored but does not run ScanDisk.

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.
