Save file names corrupts
« on: April 10, 2017, 10:21 PM »
I usually keep a backup of my ED saves. So the issues isn't that huge. But sometimes my saves completely corrupts, renames into .es instead of .nes, becomes impossible to delete and rename and only way to solve it is a format.

Example:


Any idea the cause for this and what I could do to avoid it in the long run?

I guess it something related to 8x3 dos naming format. Usually there is no problems, but may be some non windows systems, or file managers handle short names somehow different compared to regular windows and it makes N8 crazy (:
Should work if you will rename rom file, if name will be longer than 8 symbols
