After you use any version of Symantec Norton Speed Disk prior to
version 7.0 on a compressed DoubleSpace drive, the DBLSPACE /CHKDSK
command may report a very large number of lost allocation units.
This occurs when you have set the option to Clear Unused Disk Space
and then perform a full optimization.
To correct this problem, type the following at the MS-DOS command
prompt and then press ENTER:
NOTE: The Compress program from PCTools versions 5.5 and 6.0 may also
cause the above problem if the Clear Unused Disk Space option is set
when you perform a full optimization.
