Windows Autosave and Backup files; are these potentially a problem ?
For windows '95 up until OEM service release 2, the OS could not distinguish the difference between the files:-
on a read, we have managed to find a work around for this, however we would advise that the 3 letter extension is adhered to for these releases. For releases of '95 OEM service release 2 and greater, '98 and NT we have not found a problem with any of the auto save and backup naming.
Obviously, the backup naming will depend on the native file system. For instance if your system administrator has not enabled long file names on your Novel server.
