2.6. Long file names display

Starting from Windows 95, file name is no longer limited to the [8.3] pattern and can have a length of up to 255 characters.

Standard View displays all files and folders the same way as DOS does, i.e. it forms a file name using [8.3] format and displays it. However sometimes it is not convenient to see the only first several symbols of the long file name.

  • Boot in DOS mode and run Active@ Disk Image
  • Position the marker to the particular drive, or opened disk image
  • Scan the drive and folder by pressing [ENTER]
