Difference Between the DIR /C and DIR /CH Commands (96514)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
• Microsoft Windows 95
This article was previously published under Q96514
The DIR command has two switches that you can use to display
compression ratio information: /C and /CH.
• /C displays the compression ratio of a file assuming that it
resides on a drive using 8-kilobyte (K) clusters.
• /CH uses the cluster size of the host partition.
In most cases, there is no difference between the output of these
switches unless your DoubleSpace host partition uses a cluster size
other than 8 kilobytes. For example, if you have a file on a drive
using 4K clusters, the compression ratio displayed generated from DIR
/C would be 1.5; DIR /CH would generate a compression ratio of 2.0.
