DoubleSpace may not be able to convert a Stacker 3.0 compressed drive if the stacked volume has a filename other than STACVOL.DSK. If the stacked volume is not named STACVOL.DSK, you may receive the following error message:

Dblspace was not able to convert your Stacker drives to dblspace format


The conversion process searches specifically for the stacked volume named STACKVOL.DSK.


To correct this problem, rename the stacked volume STACVOL.DSK. In addition, change the reference to the stacked volume in the CONFIG.SYS file. For example:
   device=c:\stacker\ c:\stackvol.dsk
