DRVSPACE /MOUNT Err Msg: Cannot Find the File DRVSPACE.000 (120590)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.21
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.


If your DoubleSpace-compressed drive is already mounted and you run the following command

dblspace /mount <x>:

where <x> is the drive letter, the following incorrect error message is displayed:

Cannot find the file DBLSPACE.000
This message should actually state that drive x is already mounted; it should not imply that the compressed volume file (CVF) is not found on the system.


To determine whether the CVF has been previously mounted, type the following command

dblspace /list

You can use the DIR command and then search for the CVF name stated in the error message.

NOTE: The error message always returns the CVF file extension .000, which is not necessarily the correct extension.
