No, you will need to remove the double space.

If you are using Win95 B then you will definitely have to to make use of the FAT32.

The decompression and compression that needs to be done would need a LOT of memory and so is not feasible.

Also I believe Win95 is not compatible with the older version of
DriveSpace/DoubleSpace.

BUT Win95 does come with its own drive compression utility which I have been told is far better

but in a nutshell you will need to remove the compression.
its a LOT safer that way anyway.

hope this helps
