View Full Version : Windows short names - an brilliant concept (not!)

I navigated to a music folder directly via a URL (i.e.
http://server:9000/browse.html?dir=Artist%5CAlbum) and
being a lazy typist, I used the Windows short name for
the Album path. Now SlimServer thinks I have two copies
of the album under the two names.

I know I was just being wicked, but there's a Windows
API (I think) that will convert the short name to the
long one. Should SlimServer check before creating a new
entry in the copy of the directory in memory?

I'm guessing I'll have to wipe cache to get rid of the
duplicate entry.
