If you mount a compressed removable media disk, replace it with an
uncompressed disk, and then access the old compressed disk's host
drive letter, the directory listing of the uncompressed removable
media disk is displayed using the host drive letter.
NOTE: This problem occurs at the MS-DOS command prompt and in Windows
To avoid this problem, do not access the host drive letter after
replacing a compressed removable media disk with an uncompressed disk.
For example, after using a compressed removable media disk in drive D
(with a host drive G), immediately access drive D (not drive G) after
inserting an uncompressed removable media disk. If you are using File
Manager, you can simply press F5 after switching disks.
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.
