Can I extract files from a doublespace file?

I have a DBLSPACE.000 file taken from a deleted partition(!!) which contains amongst it's 90Mb two directories. Unfortunately, the file comes from an old 3.11 machine and I need to read it on a OSR2 Win95 machine - so I don't think I can even try to mount it as a compressed drive  (4k clusters).
Does anyone know another way of extracting files from it?

Have you tried mounting the file with Win95's drivespace...I am sure that it is backwards compatible....

I had a machine that was doublespaced, I then upgraded to Win95 and it automatically found and mounted it....

try it out....

Yeah, this is pretty much what I expected. Now, don't get me wrong - I have the greatest respect for someone who's amassed more than 50,000 points, but I think I'll wait a while and see if anyone else has a suggestion!
If not, then as J2's answer would prove to be correct, I'll have no choice but to give an A Grade for the doom & gloom answer.

This maybe the answer you have been waiting for but wait.

The answer will consist of a long list of instructions, but to enable  me to force myself to sitdown and type them in, I need to be tempted with a BIGGER carrot.

I'm intrigued but I only have 145 points credit at the moment, so I've thrown this into the pot.
I'll keep on adding points until you deem the carrot big enough!!
