   No point in being redundant... check out the Disk Compression
   Section.

     * 13.4.1. Is it safe to use Norton Utilities for Win95 with
       DriveSpace 3? 
       
   I don't trust it, even though Symantec swears by it. Contrary to
   popular belief, Microsoft's ScanDisk and Defrag (You know; those
   programs that MS pirated off Symantec?) work just fine on DriveSpace 3
   drives, keeping them clean, especially if you schedule these programs
   to run regularly with System Agent.
   
   Notice though, that Plus comes with replacement versions of ScanDisk
   and Defrag, so that's enough to scare me from third party disk
   maintenance tools... MS must've changed something fundamental with
   DriveSpace 3.

     * 13.4.2. Is it safe to use DriveSpace3 on FAT32 drives? 
       
   I guess not. DS3's setup program will blatantly refuse to create a
   compressed volume file on a FAT32 drive. (Hey, Stac Electronics!
   That's your cue... get on it!)
