Version History:

Superceeds MS-DOS® 6.21. After Microsoft® had to deal with the injunction from the Stac lawsuit, they quickly finished their contingency development on a disk compression replacement. Vertisoft®, the makers of a product named Double Disk®, licensed their compression code to Microsoft® who then bundled it with this release as a new compression utility named DRVSPACE. Aside from this, this version is virtually identical to MS-DOS® 6.20.
