DoubleSpace Reboots System After Compressing a Floptical Disk (103532)

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

This article was previously published under Q103532


When you compress a floptical disk, DoubleSpace restarts the system.

This problem occurs because DoubleSpace treats a floptial drive (an optical drive with removable disks) like a hard disk drive, not a floppy drive.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS version 6.2. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
