Troubleshooting

What happened to my filenames?

Modern operating systems, such as Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000, enable you to have filenames up to 256 characters. A common problem occurs when a user copies files with long filenames to a DOS machine that supports only the 8.3 filename format. DOS renames a long filename by truncating it and adding a tilde (~) and a numeric character.
