> Subject: Disable 8.3 names on FAT?
> NT has a registry option called "NTFSDisable8dot3NameCreation"
> which you can
> set to disable 8.3 file names. This results in ONLY a LONG filename being
> created for every new file on the system, reducing overhead.
> When you create long filenames on a FAT partition under NT, the 8.3 short
> filename is also created (you can view it with "dir/x").
> Does anyone know how to turn 8.3 filename creation off on a FAT partition?
> Changing the above registry setting doesn't seem to effect this option on
> FAT partitions, because I can see a short and long filename
> appear in either
> Anyone have any ideas?
