  1. Ridiculous the amount of hoops, rabbitholes, and exceptions one had to deal with when using DoubleSpace! Was it worth it?

      DoubleSpace was pretty amazing for its time.  I used it on a 170MB drive that my grandfather had, and it brought it up to ~420MB.  He used it that way for over fifteen years until I finally upgraded it.

      I've had rather good luck with disk compression. My comment more or less applies to today - retrieving information from it and getting it into a modern PC. Once I figured out the whole "ecosphere" that is DoubleSpace, it was a breeze. Tedious. But still eminently workable.

       

      Back in the day it was invaluable to me. Couldn't always afford to upgrade HDD. And DoubleSpace got me through the times right after school.

       

      Never really lost any info either.
