DRVSPACE: DBLSPACE Files NOT Updated on Uncompressed Drive (121224)

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

This article was previously published under Q121224


When you upgrade to MS-DOS 6.22 from MS-DOS 6.0 on an uncompressed system, the DBLSPACE.BIN file in the root directory is not updated. The files DBLSPACE.EXE, DBLSPACE.HLP, and DBLSPACE.SYS located in the DOS directory are also not updated.


This occurs because the DBLSPACE.BIN file is in the root directory rather than the DOS directory.


To work around this problem:
    Re-expand DBLSPACE.BIN to the DOS directory. -or-

    Transfer the system files back to drive C by using the MS-DOS 6.0 boot disk and typing sys a: c:. Copy the DBLSPACE.BIN file to the DOS directory and then upgrade to MS-DOS 6.22.


This problem does not occur if DBLSPACE.BIN is NOT in the DOS directory on a drive compressed using Compress In Place or Create New Drive.
