Contents of the Microsoft Plus! Startup Disk

If you install DriveSpace 3, two files on the Startup disk must be updatedso that you can access DriveSpace 3 compressed volumes when you start yourcomputer using the Startup disk. When you compress a volume with DriveSpace3, you are prompted to update the Startup disk. If you reinstall MicrosoftPlus! after you compress a volume with DriveSpace 3, or if you do notcompress a volume with DriveSpace 3, you are not prompted to update theStartup disk.

An updated Startup disk contains the same files as listed above, with theexception of the following two files:
