Pressing F3 in Help Doesn't Exit DriveSpace Conversion (121247)

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

This article was previously published under Q121247


When you are using the MS-DOS 6.22 DoubleSpace user interface to convert DoubleSpace-compressed drives to DriveSpace format, the second screen, "Conversion Confirmation," offers the F1 key for Help. Pressing F1 generates the following message:

DriveSpace is about to convert all Mounted DoubleSpace drives to DriveSpace format. To convert your drives press C. DriveSpace will then convert each of your DoubleSpace drives. If you do not want to convert your DoubleSpace drives press F3 to Exit.
Pressing F3 has no effect and does not allow you to exit the Help dialog box.


Choose the Close button in the Help dialog box and then select the "No To Convert" option to exit the DoubleSpace-to-DriveSpace conversion.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS version 6.22. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
