PC Tools SI Doesn't See Automounted DoubleSpace Floppy Disk (104541)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This article was previously published under Q104541


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.

The PC Tools SI utility does not display information for an automatically mounted DoubleSpace-compressed floppy disk.

When PC Tools SI reads the floppy disk, it is mounted, but the Automount code confuses the application.


To work around this problem, run PC Tools SI twice or mount the floppy disk before you run PC Tools SI.
