    Windows 98 provides a way to create a bootable emergency startup disk.
    A client has a P4 laptop with a 8GB hard drive partitioned into a single volume. The CD ROM drive isn't working. During a troubleshooting session you boot the system with the startup disk and you notice the following drives when you run the various DIR commands:
    the C: drive, D: drive, and E: drive

    Which file is causing the third drive to appear?

    A) MSDOS.SYS

    B) BTCDROM.SYS

    C) RAMDRIVE.SYS

    D) DRVSPACE.BIN

    Answer tommorow :)

    [HIDE]The answer is C

    Ramdrive.sys creates a virtual hard drive in RAM. You can create more than one if you so wish by adding more ramdrive.sys lines into your config.sys file. Because these drives are resident in memory, any contents will be lost when you power off or re-start.[/HIDE]

    I'm gonna go with C.

    Reason: If CD-rom doesn't work then I'm guessing it can't be btcdrom & I don't think B or D give a drive letter whereas ramdrive (temporarily) does...

    I think..

    Because A+ covers all the OS's between Windows 95 up to XP Pro. As the OS's have developed they have also changed the commands, paths, shortcuts, folders and methods of doing anything. For example older OS's installed into the 'winnt' folder while xp installs into the 'windows' folder, the my documents folder used to be called the briefcase. When the question mentions which OS's it's usually a hint as to which 'feature set' it has.



    BTW my choice for this one is

    I don't think that is correct Nugg. My Documents has been called My Documents since Windows 95.

    My Briefcase was a half hearted attempt at what is now known as Offline Files or that is my interpretation :rolleyes:
