   In order for Win95 to actually start, Win95 DOS has to see any
   compressed drives you might have installed Win95 on. There is a real
   mode DriveSpace driver (and a real-mode DRVSPACE.INI settings file) in
   the root of your boot drive, though they're hidden.
   
   If you have an empty CONFIG.SYS file (which you should), when Win95
   starts it will remove the real mode DRVSPACE.SYS driver and run the
   protected mode driver in its place, freeing up the 60 KB.
   
   If you insist on keeping a DOS configuration (Or if you specified a
   special DOS config for any of your games), you can continue to use

DEVICEHIGH=%WINDIR%\COMMAND\DRVSPACE.SYS /MOVE

   to re-locate the real mode driver to upper memory.
