I'm working on a computer that has been compressed using drivesapce 3. Problem: somehow he lost every windows subdirectory and and reinstalling win95 an error comes up that there is an incompatability between drivespace vxd and drivesapce real mode driver. He'd like that fixed so he brought it to me. He no longer has ms plus so cannot reinstall drivesapce3. My question is will using fdisk to delete partitions and mbr solve this problem and allow formatting of the drive or is there another avenue I can explore

Yes, you can delete the partitions by using fdisk then reformat the drive.  However, what version of Win95 are you using?  Win95 OSR2 has a newer version of Drivespace 3 then MS Plus.
