Err Msg: Invalid Setting in DBLSPACE.INI: FIRSTDRIVE=... (114227)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
This article was previously published under Q114227
You receive the following error message when you start your machine from
the hard disk drive
Invalid setting in the DBLSPACE.INI file: FIRSTDRIVE=<*>
where <*> is ASCII character 25 (decimal), which is the down-arrow
In addition, your compressed drives do not mount at startup.
This problem can occur if the DBLSPACE.BIN file is not in memory (for
example, because you pressed CTRL+F5 or CTRL+F8 at startup) and you run any
of the following DoubleSpace commands and then reboot.
To correct this problem, manually mount your DoubleSpace drive(s) by using
the DBLSPACE /MOUNT command. You must do this for each compressed drive.
For more information about this command, type help dblspace /mount at an MS-DOS command prompt.
NOTE: The DBLSPACE.EXE command should be on your uncompressed drive if you
were able to execute the DoubleSpace commands listed under in the "Cause"
section of this article. However, if it is not there, you must manually
expand it from the original MS-DOS disks.
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information
here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
