tolstoj, Try this.

Use MS-DOS Prompt (start-programs-MS-DOS Prompt) to go to the A:\ prompt and type as following where "_" is showing the space and "C:\data\dir-a1.doc" is the example of a file name in storing your directory of A drive for retrieval, editing and printing.

A:\>dir/s/oe_A:_/o:gn_/4_>_C:\data\dir-a1.doc

It looks like this: -
A:\>
A:\>dir/s/oe A: /o:gn /4 > C:\data\dir-a1.doc
A:\>

Then use wordpad to open the file "dir-a1.doc". Select any data within the file and ready to print.
You can set your printer and page setting or copying to other word programs and print to label.

tolstoj,
If you open the doc file, on the left hand side is the short name in 8.3 format. On the right hand side is the long file name.

For floppy drive A, you may find the short file name is the same as the long file name. It is because it is in FAT (FAT16).

Long file name can only be shown in FAT32.

If you use this method to print C: drive or any subdirectory of C drive (FAT32), you will find the difference and you can find the long file name in the right hand side.
