I recentely bought a 6.4gb Hard disk, I am running Windows98 For example If I try to install a game like Unreal win98 gives me a message saying that I don't have enough disk space, even though when I go to My computer it displays that I have 5.50gb free space.  DriveSpace3 show that my max disk space is 2.0gb is this the problem or what explain how I can get full usage of my drive without partitioning it in to 3 drive of 2.0gb.

This problem has been bugging me for two weeks and I have toubleshooted to the max.

F2,

  The problem is that drivespace and FAT32 are not compatible.  Remove drivespace and your problems will go away.
