and you run DoubleSpace or DriveSpace, you receive one of the following

DRVSPACE.HLP, or DRVSPACE.INF.
The error message you receive depends on the number of files in your root
directory and whether or not DoubleSpace or DriveSpace is already installed

These error messages are displayed when there are too many files in the
