I am unable to run PURGE on a particular work station using Win 95 on my 3.12 network.  It returns "Volume or directory not found" regardless of parameters used if any.  Other stations have no problem.  They all use MS Client.

This is a known problem using the MS Client. Funny thing is that on some machines it will work, Microsoft says be sure to have the latest drivers for your NIC and besure to map a drive letter to the volume your purging. Again this won't always work. I have found that using the Novell 32 bit client on the admin's machine is always a good idea and it's free from Novell's site "support.novell.com". Both clients have their problems but it seems that Novell's has fewer if your a Netware only LAN.
