Hello,

I'm running Windows98 SE, I read that deleting Drvspace.bin, will decrese bootup time, the article said that nobody uses Drvspace.bin anymore, and it's safe to delete from C:\Windows\Command folder, and the root directory,
What do they mean by the root directory?

The root directory means, when you click on My Computer & then on the C: drive. Everything in that section is is referred to being in the root directory.

Drvspace.bin and Dblspace.bin can both be deleted.

Also, go into the MSDOS.SYS file and see if there are any entries like this:

DrvSpace=#
DblSpace=#

If there are, change the # to zero.

(Note: You will have to right-click the file, click Properties, uncheck Read Only, and click Apply - OK before you can make any changes in MSDOS.SYS. Once you finish making any changes, click File - Save - File - Exit, then repeat the above steps to recheck Read Only)

Thank you for your help, I checked MSDOS.SYS, DrvSpace was not listed in there.

Nice webpage you got.

Thanks again.
