View Full Version : Formatting a diskette

04-25-2001, 03:23 AM
When I format a diskette and check the box marked "Copy system files only", why is DRVSPACE.BIN one of the files that's there when it's done? I know what the file is and what it's for, but none of my HD's are compressed, so why do I really need it on the floppy? Is it just in case I might want to compress any files I add later? If I don't, can I regain the 68K by deleting it after unchecking the Hidden and Read-only boxes in Properties? Inquiring minds and all that.

As far as I know, yes. If you don't have/want compressed drives then drivespace can go.....
