Long file names on new hard drive
Posted on 1998-08-01
I have a 2.5 gig hard drive and just added a 6.4. I used a piece of software called DriveCopy. You put your new drive in as the master, boot from floppy and run it to copy to the new drive. It worked just fine with one exception, I had to partition the remainder of my new hard drive, the part not used for my old drive's data. Now my new logical drives no longer support long file names. I do not know if this makes any difference but I do not have the "B" version of Wndows 95 so my partitions are FAT16, not FAT32. I do not think this is the problem but I have no idea what else it could be. Do you have any ideas how I can make my new logical drives accept long filenames? I have not moved anything to them so I can start the whole process over if need be.
