Just a quick one, in XP Pro, my folder names seem to truncate to anything from 2 to 8 characters.

Any thoughts as to why and what can I do?!

Does this happen to every single folder, or only certain ones?

It happens on most folders. I managed to look elsewhere on the net and found that it had something to do with extra languages, like Thai. Removing those from regional settings and languages has done the job.

Good thing too, it was doing my head in!
