We have an interesting problem.  We just upgraded our systems, which included the transfer of two drives containing DRVSPACE compressed file systems.  The new systems came with Win95 installed, but not Win95Plus.

We we tried to access the data on the compressed drives, it stated that the Win95Plus version was required.

However, when we attempted to install Win95Plus, it refused to install DRVSPACE as the version that came with the system is "newer".

What do I need to do to gain access to the files that are on those disks?

ok Bob you will have to get a updated version of drivespace because the drivespace in the system might not work with win95 plus I suggest you go to http://www.microsoft.com and find out from their technical support people.
