The following problems occur when a network drive is mapped over a drive letter reserved for use by DoubleSpace.
    If a network drive is mapped over a host drive letter, the full- screen DoubleSpace maintenance program changes the LastDrive= line in the DBLSPACE.INI file. No error message is displayed.
    You may receive the following error message when you choose DoubleSpace Info from the Tools menu in File Manager:

    DblSpace Error - There was a problem reading the information from this compressed drive.

    After you mount a removable disk and use the same drive letter for the host drive and a network drive you can't access the network drive. (To work around this problem, unmount the compressed disk.)
NOTE: 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.
