BTW this behaves differently on Win9x and Win2k/XP and may cause problems. I'm not sure but if file doesn't have LFN entry, Win2k/XP will display it uppercase by default and Win9x lowercase, just want to say this systems behaves little bit different. Why bother with it? I found that some Windows programs (moslty port from *nix) are case sensitive on filenames. I know about few applications that will break if you change its files case from lower to upper. It simply doesn't run - any error displayed. When files renamed back to lower case it works again. I hate this behavior on Windows...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
