Lastdrivehigh is a CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS command.
Lastdrivehigh sets the last letter to which a drive can be assigned.
where x is the last letter that will be available.
- none -
By default, FreeDOS will set x high enough for all floppy drives and
detectable hard drive partitions, plus one for a CD or other drive.
You may want to set x higher if you wish to use more than one drive that
FreeDOS cannot detect automatically (CD drives, zip drives etc.).
Setting x higher than necessary wastes a small amount of memory.
LASTDRIVEHIGH is like LASTDRIVE, except it attempts to load into high
memory first (failing that it should load in conventional memory).
Note: The order you load devices may have a large impact on amount
of free memory available. In general try to load large (in memory
usage) programs into high memory first.
Important: You should have a high memory manager such as HIMEM, HIMEMX
or JEMMEX installed (prior device=himem.exe or device=himemx.exe
in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS) before using this option.
LASTDRIVEHIGH is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other
file in order to work.
IN CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS:
lastdrivehigh=z enables drive letters from A - Z.
