If you used SMARTDrive Monitor (SmartMon) to change SMARTDrive's cache settings, you may receive the following error message after exiting SmartMon:

SmartMon is unable to save the new cache settings in the specified batch file.


This error message is displayed when SmartMon is unable to find the SMARTDrive command line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. This may be due to the fact that SmartMon does not recognize the LH command and /L switch when they are used together. For example, SmartMon cannot modify the following line:
   lh c:\dos\smartdrv.exe /l


To work around this problem, change the cache settings by manually editing the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SmartMon version 3.1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
