This problem occurs when DoubleSpace reboots your computer and there is
insufficient memory to convert your Stacker volume file (SVF) to a
DoubleSpace compressed volume file (CVF) due to the size of your SVF.
You can work around this problem by using the following procedure:

routine after each step.
• Place DBLSPACE.SYS in a parallel directory on the host drive. For

type xcopy c:\dos\dblspace.sys d:\dos\ at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
• Edit the CONFIG.SYS file and ensure the DEVICE commands for HIMEM.SYS

• Edit the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files and remark out unneeded
device drivers and terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs using
the REM command.
• Defragment the host drive for the Stacker-compressed drive. To do
• Copy ATTRIB.EXE to the host drive.
• Copy DEFRAG.EXE to the host drive.
• Unmount the Stacker-compressed drive.
• Clear the file attributes on the SVF. For example, type attrib -r
-s -h stacvol.* at the MS-DOS
command prompt and then press ENTER.
• Run DEFRAG /H <host drive> to fully defragment the Stacker host
