The files on the Startup disk should be dated either 7/11/95 or the date on which the Startup disk was created.

Contents of the Microsoft Plus! Startup Disk

If you install DriveSpace 3, two files on the Startup disk must be updated so that you can access DriveSpace 3 compressed volumes when you start your computer using the Startup disk. When you compress a volume with DriveSpace 3, you are prompted to update the Startup disk. If you reinstall Microsoft Plus! after you compress a volume with DriveSpace 3, or if you do not compress a volume with DriveSpace 3, you are not prompted to update the Startup disk.

An updated Startup disk contains the same files as listed above, with the exception of the following two files:
   Scandisk.exe    137,836    07-14-95 4:40a
   Drvspace.bin     64,135    07-14-95 4:40a
