Using CFileFind

While using CFileFind in a recursive directory search for all .WAV files, it appears to skip a WAV file in my C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory.  I'm concerned that this problem may happen other places I haven't caught yet.  I've traced through, and CFileFind::FindNextFile() simply never sees it, even if I ONLY scan C:\WINDOWS|TEMP.

Is there a known problem here or some gotcha?

Also, how do I extract the short file name (8.3) of the CFileFind results?

In this case, please check your hard disk with scandisk first to make sure there is no error with it. Also, copy all the files under C:\WINDOWS\TEMP to another directory and try your program again to see what happens.

You can call GetShortPathName() to get the short file name.
