Support for Long File Names in FAT

Jun 29, 2009 at 7:51 PM

Just got asked this question, thought it might apply to more people - so posting it here:

Can I create and format a fat file system that doesn't have the limitation on file name to 8 characters?

 

Currently not - I've shied away from supporting FAT Long File Names because it's pretty heavily patent encumbered [wikipedia], and Microsoft has followed through with requesting royalties for products using those patents.
