Compression properties, drive C:

On Windows 95, finding the compression properties on drive C: is very easy, start, programs, accessories, system tools, then  "drive space", however on Windows 98, I can't seem to find this configuration, what is the proper sequence to acquire this information, your help is most appreciated,thank you.

Well, I have win 98, and mine is located Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and there is a drivespace program listed.  Check this.  Right click on the my computer icon, select properties.  Then check the tab marked Performance.  There is an entry titled Disk Compression.  If it is not installed, it will say so, otherwise it will advise you of the compression status.

It should be the same perhaps you didn't install it. Go to Control Panel,Add/Remove then the tab for Windows setup. Check to see if the component is installed under system tools.                  Mrbreeze

Nicholas, run Find, Files and Folders and see if DRVSPACE.EXE is on your system.

Nicholas,
The proper procedure (well the one I always use) is
Open My Computer
Right hand click the drive in question
Select Properties
You now have three tabs,
General
Tools
and Compression

Good Luck
Hannibal.

I found the answer to the problem about not receiving 16khz on my sound blaster
AWE64, what I finally had to do is go into the control panel, Windows setup, and remove Multimedia completely and reinstall it from my Windows95 CD, the first time I did it the problem persisted, so I tried it again and this time it worked, just lucky, thank you for all your advice, it really gives a person a good feeling when someone replies, thanks again.

I'm confused, what does a sound blaster problem have to do with drive compression?
