If you run DBLSPACE /RATIO before the NET command is used in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, you may receive an insufficient memory error message.


This problem occurs when the network has not released the memory used during loading because network binding has not yet occurred.


It is not necessary to run DBLSPACE /RATIO from the AUTOEXEC.BAT file since DoubleSpace reliably reports the amount of free disk space. However, if you want to run DBLSPACE /RATIO from the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, place the NET START command before the DBLSPACE /RATIO command, as in the following example:
   c:\windows\net start
   c:\dos\dblspace /ratio
