                              DRVSPACE /DELETE
 
Deletes the selected compressed drive and erases the associated compressed
volume file.
 
CAUTION:  Deleting a compressed drive erases the entire drive and all the
          files it contains.
 
Syntax
 
    DRVSPACE /DELETE drive:
 
Parameter
 
drive:
    Specifies the drive you want to delete. (DriveSpace will not allow you
    to delete drive C.)
 
Switch

See <DRVSPACE /DELETE -- Note> for information about restoring a compressed
drive that has been accidentally deleted.

                          DRVSPACE /DELETE -- Note
 
If you accidentally delete a compressed drive, you might be able to restore
it by using Microsoft Undelete. When DriveSpace deletes a compressed drive,
it actually deletes a file on your uncompressed drive. This file is called
the "compressed volume file". A compressed volume file has a filename in the
form DRVSPACE.xxx (for example, DRVSPACE.000).
 
First, restore the deleted compressed volume file by using Undelete. Once
you have restored the file, remount it by using the <DRVSPACE /MOUNT>
command. If DriveSpace cannot remount the compressed volume file, run
<ScanDisk> on that compressed volume file.
 
For information about using Microsoft Undelete, see the chapter "Managing
Your System" in the MS-DOS User's Guide.

                        DRVSPACE /DELETE -- Example
 
The following command directs DriveSpace to delete compressed drive E:
 
    drvspace /delete e:
 
DriveSpace then deletes the compressed volume file for drive E. This
completely erases drive E and all the files it contains.
 
Note:  You cannot delete drive C.
 
See <DRVSPACE /DELETE -- Note> for information about restoring a compressed
drive that has been accidentally deleted.
