Compressed SCSI Drive Does Not Mount at Startup (97107)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.


DoubleSpace may not be able to mount compressed volume files (CVFs) on your SCSI drive when you start your computer if you load SSTOR.SYS into upper memory after DBLSPACE.SYS.


To work around this problem, load SSTOR.SYS into upper memory before DBLSPACE.SYS. For example:
   devicehigh=c:\dos\dblspace.sys /move
