TI99Dir and network shares

Recommended Posts

Last year I posted a problem that I thought was caused by my Synology NAS. 

 

Using Win10 and TI99Dir, if a file (in the folder)  -starts- with a certain range of characters, inclusive of  "!#$%&()+-,", [visible ASCII characters in range >20 to >2F] Ti99Dir halts with "Can't read... access is denied" error.  (see below).  If I rename the offending file(s), I can access the folder. This happens with both Win10 Pro and Win10 Home. 

 

  • If I browse the same NAS folders and files using Win7 and Ti99Dir, no problem
  • If I move the folders and files locally to a Win7 or Win10 machine, TI99Dir does not produce the error and operates as expected.

 

Fast forward to today... I extracted a disk image to the TIPI share.  One of the files is named "!Readme".  When I tried to read the folder in Ti99Dir, I got the same error.  I browsed from both my Win10 Pro and Win10 home machines,  same results with both NAS and TIPI folders/files.   My Win7 machine and an old WinXP machine with the same version of Ti99Dir exhibit no problems on NAS and TIPI.

 

Could one or two of you folks with TIPI and a Win10 machine try the same operations?

I reported this experience to Fred @F.G. Kaal last year but at the time, I/we thought the NAS was the culprit.  Now it seems the problem may be Win10 or TI99Dir.   Much appreciated.

Yea one anoying thing about TIDIR for me is when you copy a file like say LRXB6 from TI Files directory

on Classic99 to desktop PC DOS file it changes the name from LRXB6 to lrxb6 and of course TI99/4A can not use it.

 

Got to ask why is it changing the case?????

Not sure I've seen that before.  the TI should be able to use lower case files just fine, though, just disable the alpha lock ;)

 

I am hoping someone can test the above scenarios at some point in time.

From TI DIR TI DSK to PC DESKTOP it is changing the CASE for some unknown reason. 

Look if the file is LRXB6 and after changed to lrxb6 on desktop that is not a copy of the same name, I asked WHY IS IT CHANGING CASE OF NAME?

 

What does the Alpha lock have to this transfer?

As I said, I haven't seen that before.  My alpha lock comment (or caps lock in emulation?) was in response to your first message (emphasis mine)

The TI can indeed "use" lower case files.

The question you did not answer was why is it changing UPPER CASE to lower case?

I do not know. That's a question for Fred.  I've never experienced that problem. My upper case files are never shifted to lower case by TI99Dir.

Very strange?
