When you try to compress disk, you may receive the following error message:

An unrecognized error has occurred during compression. Your files are still intact, but might be located on a different drive than before you ran DoubleSpace Setup.


This error occurs if:
    You try to compress a write-protected removable media disk. -or-

    The root directory of the drive being compressed is full.


To work around this problem, make sure the media you are trying to compress is not write protected and the root directory is not full.
