Topic: Error on paths (long filenames?) - Win7 + NAS
I just tested Siren v3.01 coming from version 2.00 (on Windows 7).
I wanted to let you know that I immediately got an error trying to access a path on a NAS storage unit (it is a QNAP TS-239, which uses SAMBA).
For instance, this path:
Y:\Foto\Foto 3\2007-12-25 Natale
returned the following error:
"Impossible to access to Y:\Foto\FMGOOT~O\243Q4C~X"
I thought it might depend on the presence of spaces in the name (sometimes I also use underscores, even as the first character), but following path also fails:
Y:\Foto\Immagini\Sfondi\background -> "Impossible to access to Y:\Foto\Immagini\Sfondi\BRG4XN~5".
Obviously I tried many other paths; most of them fail, and I haven't been able to find any connection with the name of the file being accessed (or maybe there are multiple reasons: spaces, filenames longer than 8 characters...).
It looks like there is an improper use of the short name for the file somewhere.
I never had similar problems with any other programs; even Siren 2.00 always functioned correctly.
Please tell me if there is any further test I can help you with.
Thanks for your efforts!
