File Names and Volume label


If I archive (Compress into a *.rar file for example) a set of files with file names longer than what Nero allows, will the files inside the archive stilll have their file names truncated?

Also, is there anyway to get a longer volume label name?

Lastly, is there any other stable burning software that allows longer file names than Nero?


Edit: I forgot to mention, my Nero version is the latest 5.5 build, and am using a Sony DRU510A under Windows XP SP2.

Limitations on volume label names. A volume label can contain as many as 32 characters for NTFS volumes and as many as 11 characters for FAT volumes and can include spaces but no tabs.

Ah, so there’s no way around the volume label limitation. What about the file names though?


It varys per application. IE Window folders have a max name length of 203, where WinRaR files have a name length of 179.
