    I was wondering if anyone knew the effect, if any, that the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation and the NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate reg tweaks would have on FD-ISR. I've made an image with IFD, and am going to try them out, but I was just curious if anyone here had some experience with this. Thanks in advance

    "NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation" will cause your software using "~1" to be invalid. You have to manually edit the registry to full paths. Very tedious!

    You can't UNDO this. So leave that tweak alone.

    I posted here about this problem before but no replies.

    Actually you should be able to undo any registry modification with FDISR, but I'd agree, I'd leave them alone. Not sure what is to be gained.

    I tried to undo the tweak but Windows won't recognise the "~1" in the registry.
    It's permanent. I had to format.... :(

    A lesson I will never forget.....

    Did you copy and update another FDISR snapshot before trying the tweak. If you did FDISR should have solved the problem.

    Sadly no. My fault for tweaking without backups. :p
