Drive95 Problems with 1MB 95LX?

Drive95 Problems with 1MB 95LX?

Since switching to a 1MB 95LX I find that I have difficulty going from FILER to DOS when I'm also using Sparcom's Drive95. If I go to DOS and then try to go back to the FILER with "EXIT" or "ROM.BAT", it takes a very long time to finally get back to FILER.

When I use the 512K version of the 95LX, it goes back to FILER right away. The same FILER-to-DOS delay happens when I'm using a CONFIG.SYS file on the 1MB 95LX, (but again, not on the 512K! Any suggestions?

I have another problem with Drive95. Its user documentation says that I can backup the 95LX from FILER to Drive95, tagging the desired files and copying them over. But I don't understand how this is possible, since Drive95 is seen as the G drive, and this can only exist outside of SYSMGR? Do I have to register DRIVE95.SYS (Drive95's device driver) in the APPCOM list for it to be able to have Drive G and FILER open at the same time?

A closing warning! The other night I fell asleep working and my wife moved my 95LX to an armchair. When I wake up, the main batteries were dead because I fell asleep without putting the 95LX back to FILER after having connected it to Drive95. Always put the 95LX out of backup mode before falling asleep, or leaving the 95LX.
