Known MS-DOS issues
Below are known Microsoft DOS issues and the resolutions to each of them, if available.
These issues related to early versions of MS-DOS. Current versions of the Windows command line do not have these issues.
Extended characters in the label of a drive
Earlier versions of Windows and MS-DOS allows extended characters to be entered into the label of the hard drive or disk drive. If invalid characters are detected in the label when running ScanDisk, it may attempt to correct the drive label and damage or destroy all the drive's data.
Xcopy and attributes
When using xcopy to copy the contents of a folder, the source folder's attributes are not applied to the new folder. The reason for this is because xcopy cannot copy attributes for directories. To fix this issue, ensure that you do not have the folders attributed.
More than 65 MB of RAM
Screen saver minimizes the window
