    I have windows 98. In my help book it says you can create more disc space by using drivespace 3. It tells about advantages of doing it , but wondered if anyone else has used it, and if so if they had any problems or know more about it. I don't think I am going to do the fat 32. Can anyone give me any info. Thanks

    If your system came with Win98 it is already FAT32!

    The converter is there, but every system I have seen that came with Win98 pre-installed , is already FAT32...I meant the system...not Win98.

    nahatche,
    Drive Compression was used when Hard Drives were small and expensive. It is a great way to lose all your information.

    I would advise you to go with FAT32. And if your Drive is old and small. If your system will support a larger or even two drives. Do that instead of using Drive Compression.
