Swap Files in MS-DOS/DOSSHELL: How to configure? (Users)

posted by CluelessInSeattl(R), Seattle, USA, 14.02.2013, 15:43

Anyone here remember MS-DOS 6.21 and/or DOSSHELL from MS-DOS version 5.0?

I used to run both of them together a decade or more ago and had them configured so that they would write their swap files to a RAM drive E: instead of to the C: drive.

I recently repartitioned and reformatted my hard drive and then reinstalled MS-DOS 6.21 and DOSSHELL from version 5.0 of MS-DOS.

And now it has reverted to writing the swap files to my C: drive. :surprised:


Since it's been over a decade (probably more like two decades) since I last configured MS-DOS to write those swap files to the RAM drive, I haven't a clue as to how I did it.

Do any of you remember how that's done?
