MIRROR Err Msg on DBLSPACE Drive: The Boot Sector for this... (104780)
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 Q104780
This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft
DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands
MIRROR may return the following error message when you try to use it
on a small DoubleSpace-compressed drive:
Drive D: error.
The boot sector for this drive is incompatible with the MIRROR
command. The mirror process was unsuccessful.
This problem occurs only if you try to use MIRROR on a very small
(approximately 1-megabyte) DoubleSpace-compressed drive that you
created by running DBLSPACE /CREATE (or by choosing Create New Drive
from the Compress menu in the DoubleSpace maintenance program).
To work around this problem, run Mirror on the host for the compressed
drive. To determine which drive is your host drive, type dblspace
/list at the MS-DOS command prompt and
then press ENTER.
