I had a complete hard drive failure and installed a newer
version of Windows 95 (4.00.950) than I was previously using.  I then restored my C drive with a backup of my old
installation.  Now when Win 95 starts to boot I get a meessage about the compression driver being the wrong version for Windows 95.  I have both versions of Win 95 on CD if needed.  I believe that I really just need to know what file(s) comprise this driver and then copy them from
the CD.
                                 Thanks for any assistance

WINDOWS 95 OSR 2 use fat 32 because you formated your hard disk using format from win95 OSR and fdisk fat32 is still in use on your hard disk (compression driver is used ) You should go with newest version of windows95 but if you need to use data from backup and software then reformat your hardisk and reinstall win95 then your problem will be history. YOU MAY BE UNABLE TO USE FDISK FOR WINDOWS95 AND YOU THEN HAVE TO GO WITH OSR2.
