  1. Hi there! I've been having a awesome time running MS-DOS 6.22 (and other operating systems) in the DOS Multiboot virtual machine (Virtual PC 2007). The guest machine loads the MS-DOS 6 Shell at startup and I have configured a awful lot of software to launch on that OS. The problem is that the boot drive where MS-DOS 6.22 resides has nearly 10,000 files and 450+ directories (I'm pretty luck to see that MS-DOS Shell is capable of reading up to 65,535 files before wrapping back at zero), I get this error message when attempting to view the files on the boot drive itself: Have you ever run into this issue when you have several thousands of files totaling hundreds of megabytes of used disk space on the drive alone? Is this a bug with the MS-DOS/PC-DOS Shell and it is unable to search so many files that it can find? Can this issue be corrected by the way even with 64 MB of usable memory installed?
