   10. Running your DOS games outside of Win95 (Not enough memory)
   
   9. Deleting the DRVSPACE.001 file (Fortunately, Win95 has a safety
   mechanism for that!)
   
   8. Deleting the DRVSPACE.BIN file
   
   7. Using an old DOS compression program
   
   6. Using a DOS driver for your IDE CD-ROM and DriveSpace (Get Win95
   drivers for the IDE port and it'll find the CD-ROM)
   
   5. Not using ScanDisk regularly (Use System Agent to do automatic disk
   scans)
   
   4. Setting your estimated compression ratio higher than your real one
   (Then installing a big game...)
   
   3. Using UltraPack on a '386 computer
   
   2. Using Norton Disk Doctor for Win95 on DriveSpace 3 drives (ScanDisk
   is more reliable... Symantec released two patch sets to fix Norton
   Utilities)
   
   1. Compressing your whole hard drive
