Windows Exporer name not NTFS name Tags: Configuration NTFS Windows XP Last response: February 25, 2011 1:41 PM in Windows XP Share gmgj February 24, 2011 8:14:40 PM In Explorer the thing displays as "Empty_WasPictures_Empty". see the top, the name is C:\Documents and Settings\US\My Documents\My Pictures "Empty_WasPictures_Empty" properties This is basic NTFS stuff I never new. WTF is it? Where is it documented? What is it called? Why the %^^& can't I change "Empty_WasPictures_Empty" to "My Pictures" Its an alias, or a synonym or symbolic link or something, but I just want to make them the same and alas I want to understand.
