Some older DOS programs, such as Pdox35, 40, 45 have a problem with
Win95 and Hard Disks that are LARGER than 2.0 gigs. If there is over
2.0 gigs free, the program "thinks" that there is no free space.
There are two work arounds that I have used. There is a file called
Lesspace.com that will allow you to run the program from Win95 or, if
you are trying to Access Hard Drives on a Network such as a Novel
network, you can have your network administrator reduce the space
available to the user to less than 2.0 gigs.
