DblSpace Err Msg: DoubleSpace Cannot Convert Your... (95599)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
This article was previously published under Q95599
You may receive the following error message when you try to convert a
Stacker volume to a DoubleSpace volume:
DoubleSpace cannot convert your Stacker drives because they have a
cluster size other than 8K. To convert your Stacker drives to
DoubleSpace format, follow the instructions in the DoubleSpace
section of the README.TXT file.
When you convert a Stacker volume to a DoubleSpace volume, your
Stacker compressed volume file (CVF) must have 8K clusters. If it does
not, you receive the error message.
When you install Stacker version 2.0 or 3.0, you have the option of
using cluster sizes other than the 8K default.
• Stacker 2.0 supports 4K and 8K clusters
• Stacker 3.0 supports 4K, 8K, 16K, and 32K clusters
Since the conversion of a Stacker volume is done cluster by cluster,
and DoubleSpace uses 8K clusters, DoubleSpace cannot convert Stacker
volumes if they don't have 8K clusters.
NOTE: This error occurs regardless of the Stacker volume file cluster
size if the Stacker volume file has never been mounted.
