Inaccurate DoubleSpace Help Message: There Is No Disk in... (99924)

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

This article was previously published under Q99924


If DoubleSpace finds a disk in drive A while examining the system before beginning compression, it displays the following message:

If the power fails during this operation, DoubleSpace will recover automatically and restart your computer. To make sure your computer restarts properly, remove the floppy disk from drive A, and then choose the Retry button.
If you press the F1 function key at this point, DoubleSpace displays the following inaccurate help message:

There is no disk in the drive you selected.

To continue, insert the disk in the drive, and then choose the Retry button.


This problem was corrected in later versions of MS-DOS.


The actual solution to this problem is to remove the disk from drive A, as is reflected in the original error message.
