So you didn't use DOS. Please tell a little bit more.
I need some help. I had my entire MP3 library in a Windows PC that crashed. My only access to the hard drive was through DOS so I copied the MP3 files from one hard drive to another and moved the new hard drive to my new PC. When I accessed the files, all the filenames had of course been truncated by DOS so what I see now on Windows is the 8 letter name. For example, 'Beat It' by Michael Jackson now appears as BEATIT~M. Can someone tell me how to restore the filenames to the original Windows full names. The new system is has IDE HDs and running WinXP SP2. File System is NTFS on all drives.
