Drivespace 3 Reports Error/Scandisk can't find it.
Posted on 1998-10-19
I compressed my drive w/ drivespace3. I would like to uncompress the volume (my C: drive). I believe this problem is preventing installation of IE4.0. When I try to do an uncompress drivespace reports that errors were found and to run scandisk with certain opts (which I have set). Scandisk finds no probs. This is a nagging problem with my system perhaps a result of a corrupted system file. I have tried running scandisk and drivespace in safe mode and also tried runnig scandisk from the command prompt. All to no avail. I have noticed that when running IE3 or quicken sometimes these programs terminate with a fatal error. My machine is a Dell Pentium 233mhz w/ 32 meg ram and plenty of free disk space (~3 gig). Nothing fancy is installed except Borlands C++ Builder and Realtime Video player. Can I somehow reinstall windows w/ out losing my current configuration? I don't have an orig. boot floppy but Dell enclosed a Win95 CD.
