    If your drive is formatted in FAT16, the most space you can use in one partition is 2GB.

    DriveSpace May Report Used Space and Free Space Incorrectly (Q229807)

    The information in this article applies to:

    Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
    Microsoft Windows 98
    Microsoft Windows 95 OEM Service Release, version 2.0


    When you use the Microsoft DriveSpace or Microsoft DriveSpace 3 tool to view the free space and used space of a hard disk that is 2 gigabytes (GB) or larger, the space may be reported incorrectly.

    This problem is due to problems in DriveSpace or DriveSpace 3.

    To work around this problem, view the free space and used space of your hard disks in Windows Explorer:

    Click Start , point to Programs , and then click Windows Explorer .

    Click the hard disk you want to check, click File , and then click Properties .

    Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
