File names are truncated / abbreviated when moved & invalid charac

Posted: 09-24-2008, 01:49 AM
When I move files from Outlook to a file folder the file name is truncated.
Prior to upgrading to Vista, I could drag / drop a file from Outlook and the
file name would remain intact. I'm not exceeding the total # of characters.
Is there a setting I can change? Also, when attempting to rename a file, I
get the error showing 'symbols' that can't be used in the file name ... but I
clearly don't have any of them in my file name - what gives? Thanks,
