DoubleSpace Mounts Bernoulli Disk as Non-Removable (105256)

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

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.


If you are using Bernoulli IOMega OAD version 1.21 device drivers with MS-DOS 6.2, DoubleSpace creates a permanently mounted drive when you compress existing data on a Bernoulli drive. When you restart your computer, DoubleSpace attempts to mount the newly created compressed disk, even if the Bernoulli drive is empty.


To work around this problem, unmount the DoubleSpace-compressed Bernoulli disk and then reboot your computer. After rebooting your computer, the disk should mount automatically when you access it.
