This article was previously published under Q121422


The MS-DOS version 6.22 DRVSPACE.INI file supports all of the switches supported by the MS-DOS versions 6.0 and 6.2 DBLSPACE.INI file, plus the following additional switch:


This switch can be used as follows:

    If UseMRCI1=0, DRVSPACE.BIN does not look for DBLSPACE.BIN to load MRCI 1d (DRVSPACE.MR1) for reading DoubleSpace drives. -or-


    If UseMRCI1=1, DRVSPACE.BIN tries to load the MRCI 1d.
The default value is 1. However, when this setting is 1, the MRCI 1d still does not load unless the valid key file (DRVSPACE.MR1) is found.

To change MRCI 1d support:
    Manually set UseMRCI1= to either 1 or 0 in the DRVSPACE.INI file. -or-

    From the Tools menu in the DriveSpace interface, choose Options, and select the Read DoubleSpace Drives check box. -or-

    Delete the DRVSPACE.MR1 key file on the boot drive (or copy to the boot drive).
