In reply to Aaron Timbrell: Long files names is not a property of ADFS, but FileCore which ised used for all native disc based filing systems - motherboard ADFS, 3rd party IDE and SCSI. None of these can natively support long filenames on Pre-RISC OS 4 machines, unless an overlay filing system such as !RaFS or !LongFiles is used, both of which have issues and do not address the storage utlisation issues with larger discs.
