DOS 6.22 setup disks

Posted on 2000-03-18
Last Modified: 2010-04-30
I have made a copy of my dos disks, but unfortuantly it doesn't recognise the first disk as the first disk.

I think the problem lies with the label of the disk.. could someone give me the label name of the 3 disks please?

(If u don't know what the label is, or know of a hidden file which wasn't copied etc to solve this problem, please don't clog up this question.. I just want the answer;o)

Hello radders,

Just checked my old DOS backup disk and they seem to have labels "DISK      1
", "DISK      2" and "DISK      3"

I guess the "space" between "DISK" and "N" is Alt+255 characters.

Hope this helps,

Thanx, that worked great...

I relabeled it using windows95 which seems to except the spaces..

Thanks for your help,
