If your software is all new, let’s say 2013 and after, it probably makes sense to disable 8.3 filename generation, for a nice kick of speed.
To do it once for all drives, just do this:
fsutil behavior set Disable8dot3 1
If you want to do it for one select drive, say E:, first do a registry edit in
you’ll want to change
NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation to 2. Then you will need to reboot, and in an administrative command prompt:
fsutil behavior set E: 1
and reboot again, and it’s done.
