Drivespace 500Mb Limitation?

I have an original '95 installation and a 1.2Gb Hard drive which is rapidly approaching 0 bytes free.  I tried to use drivespace to compress my data, but drivespace told me that since I had more than 500Mb, it could not compress.  This is the first, original Windows 95 release.  Will updating to the SR2 fix this limitation?  Any suggestions?

-- Thanks!

Use Drivespace _3_ which is on the Win95 PLUS package.  This will support your 1.2G drive.  It is also in the OSR2 package but remember you cannot use drivespace at all with the FAT32 which is also in the OSR2 relase.
