Summary

This chapter continued your look at the Windows 98 file system by showing you a few techniques for working with disks. You learned how to format a floppy disk, copy a disk, and view disk properties. I also showed you how to wield Windows 98 disk compression and how to use FDISK to partition a disk. Here are a few chapters that contain related information:

  • I discuss various techniques for optimizing disk access—including converting FAT16 partitions to FAT32—in Chapter 9, “Performance Tuning: Optimizing Memory and Disk Access.”

  • I showed you how to work with file and folders in Chapter 14, “File and Folder Tricks and Techniques.”

  • To learn how to use Windows 98's new Backup program, see Chapter 16, “Working with a Net: The Windows 98 Backup Utility.”

  • I show you how to create an emergency startup disk, as well as how to use ScanDisk and a few other disk-related utilities in Chapter 17, “Wielding the Windows 98 System Tools.”

  • To learn how to perform file maintenance from the DOS prompt, see Chapter 23, “DOS Isn't Dead: Unleashing the DOS Shell.”
