------------------ MS-DOS v6.22 Help: DRVSPACE /SWITCHES -------------------
<Notes>                                                              <Index>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                             DRVSPACE /SWITCHES
 
Modifes the SWITCHES setting in the <DRVSPACE.INI> file. The SWITCHES
setting controls the way the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+F8 keys work. (Normally, you
can press CTRL+F5 or CTRL+F8 to bypass DriveSpace when your computer
starts.)
 
If your DRVSPACE.INI file does not contain a /SWITCHES setting, you can use
CTRL+F5 or CTRL+F8 to keep from loading DriveSpace when your computer
starts. For more information, see <CONFIG.SYS commands>.
 
Note:  For this switch to take effect, you must restart your computer.
 
Syntax
 
    DRVSPACE /SWITCHES=F|N
 
Parameters
 
The values for /SWITCHES are as follows:
 
N
    Prevents you from using CTRL+F8 or CTRL+F5 to bypass DriveSpace when
    your computer starts.
 
    If you choose this setting and press CTRL+F8, MS-DOS will still allow
    you to selectively choose commands in your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT
    files. If you choose this setting and press CTRL+F5, MS-DOS will still
    bypass your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files.
 
    (Although you do not use the "/" character when specifying the N
    parameter , the setting in the DRVSPACE.INI file is SWITCHES=/N.)
 
F
    Reduces the amount of time you have to press CTRL+F8 or CTRL+F5 when
    your computer starts. Use this setting to speed up processing of your
    startup files. (Although you do not use the "/" character when
    specifying the F parameter , the setting in the DRVSPACE.INI file is
    SWITCHES=/F.)

                         DRVSPACE /SWITCHES--Notes
 
Removing /SWITCHES settings
 
To remove any /SWITCHES settings in your DRVSPACE.INI file, you must edit
the file directly. To edit the file, use a text editor such as MS-DOS Editor
(EDIT).
 
DRVSPACE /SWITCHES and the SWITCHES command
 
The DriveSpace /SWITCHES command and the SWITCHES setting in the
DRVSPACE.INI file affect only the behavior of the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+F8 keys.
To control the behavior of the F5 and F8 keys, use the <SWITCHES> command.
