When you try to run the MS-DOS 6.2 DoubleSpace Stacker Conversion routine you may receive the following error message:

The MS-DOS Stacker conversion program cannot continue because your drive(s) still contain disk errors.

Before converting your drives, you must fix all disk errors. For information about fixing disk errors, see the MS-DOS 6 User's Guide and your Stacker documentation. After fixing the errors, run CONVERT again.


This error occurs if:
    You are using Stacker 1.0. -or-

    You are using Stacker 2.x or 3.0 and Stacker is not in your path.


If you are using Stacker 2.x or 3.0, you can work around this problem by adding the Stacker directory to the PATH command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.


This error occurs with Stacker 1.0 because ALLSTACK.EXE cannot find STACKER.COM. (Stacker 1.0 does not use a STACKER.COM file).

To use the Stacker conversion routine and convert a Stacker volume file (SVF) to a DoubleSpace compressed volume file (CVF), you must have a version of Stacker between 2.0 and 3.0, inclusive.
