ABOUT BACKUPS

You probably make backups of your data regularly. (At
least, we hope you do. If you don't, you certainly should.
We say this from personal experience; disaster can strike at
any time.)

Some backup programs access your hard disk in a non-standard
way, bypassing normal DOS processing. Such backup programs
are inherently less safe than those that follow published
standards, and will not work with NewSpace. PC-Fullbak and
Back-It are two such programs that do not work with
NewSpace.

Backup programs that follow published standards, and that
don't bypass normal DOS processing, such as Fastback and
Fastback Plus (for backing up to diskette) and Tecmar's QIC-
60 (for backing up to tape), will work very well with
NewSpace. Also, the BACKUP command of DOS works with
NewSpace.

Tecmar's QT-type tape backup systems can be made to operate
in either a non-standard way or in a standard way. To make
these systems operate in the standard way (compatibly with
NewSpace), specify "Other" in the "NETWORK" field on the
options panel (whether you actually are using a network or
not).


BEFORE YOU RUN THE COMPRESS PROGRAM

If you are using a file facility program, such as File
Facility, dPATH, or EasyPath, then you should deactivate it
while you run the (one-time) COMPRESS program. Otherwise,
COMPRESS may not be able to find and compress all your
files.


FOR OWNERS OF JRAM MEMORY BOARDS

The JET program by Tall Tree Systems uses a non-standard DOS
interface, and is therefore incompatible with NewSpace.


However, the JRAM boards, and the software that manages
these boards, are compatible with NewSpace.


FOR OWNERS OF XtreePro

XtreePro sometimes accesses DOS in a non-standard way that
is incompatible with NewSpace. In order to change the way
that XtreePro works, start XtreePro with the command line
option /LS, or use XtreePro's configuration program to
specify that the "Standard" disk logging method should be
used.


NOTE

NewSpace doesn't currently work in a multi-tasking
environment such as Windows, DESQview, or TopView. In a
networking environment such as IBM's PC Network, NewSpace
doesn't currently work on the file server or servers, but
can be used to compress data on the workstations' hard disks.


IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM RUNNING UNINSTALL

Certain resident programs prevent NewSpace's UNINSTALL
program from working properly. If you try to run UNINSTALL
and have any problems, boot your system from a bootable
floppy disk with no resident programs (not even the NEWRES
program that normally activates NewSpace), and then run
UNINSTALL again.
