Doublespace hangs while scanning disk
Posted on 1997-07-06
My laptop's having some problems. I have doublespace on my HP omnibook 300 and yesterday MSWord said my file (most recent novel chapter -- eek) was hosed.
I saved as much as I could and tried chkdsk /f, which apparently has a
doublespace call tacked onto the end of it; it got to "doublespace is
checking drive C:..." it reported a bunch of problems and then hung there for nearly 20 minutes. Thinking it had gotten stuck, I
On rebooting doublespace reported "bad CVF, see the Doublespace section of
the README.TXT file and hit <return>". I have several README.TXT files on
my machine, but none which have anything to do with doublespace. Has
met up with this problem before? I know, "check the manuals," but they're in California (and I'm in Scotland...)
An easy question? Could be, could be hard to. I'll call it easy for now.
