When you start your computer, you may receive the following error message:
Windows has detected a compressed drive access error
This error occurs when Windows 95 cannot mount the compressed drive used during startup because the names of the .bin and the .ini files used for compression do not match.
Verify that the versions of the .bin files match the compression version in use. DriveSpace in Windows 95 has file dates of 7/11/95. DriveSpace 3 (included with Microsoft Plus!) has file dates of 7/14/95. If the .bin files do not have the correct date, update the files on the hard disk and the Startup disk (if you have one).
For additional information about updating the Startup disk, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
