MS-DOS SYS Copies DRVSPACE.BIN Even If You Are Using DBLSPACE (119704)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This article was previously published under Q119704


In MS-DOS 6.22, the SYS, FORMAT /S, and SETUP /F commands do not copy DBLSPACE.BIN to the target disk because MS-DOS 6.22 does not include DBLSPACE.BIN.


If you are running DoubleSpace with MS-DOS 6.22, you should manually copy the DBLSPACE.BIN file to any boot disk created using SYS, FORMAT /S, or SETUP /F. To do this:
    Create the boot disk.
    Copy DBLSPACE.BIN from the directory that contains your MS-DOS files (typically C:\DOS) to the boot disk. For example, type copy c:\dos\dblspace.bin a: at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
