I have encountered a problem on a MS Server 2003 machine.  It has 6 partioned drives, and one of them no longer has the short 8.3 file name association.  On one drive I can type the prompt command DIR /X and all the short names appear.  On the other drive, the location where the short name would appear is blank.  Is there something I can do to get these short names back?  

Appreciate any assistance on this.
