File Length = 0

I have a long-time customer reporting that the new versions of MP3-Boss (0.66x and above) are showing file length = 0 for some or all of the files he scans.

v0.57 works fine and gives the expected result.

I am not able to reproduce the problem here.  Has anyone else seen this?

The customer has short filenames disabled on an NTFS file system.  Is anyone running MP3-Boss v0.66x/v0.670 successfully on an NTFS file system with short filenames disabled?

The Statistics page of MP3-Boss includes the file system and short filename support information. You'll also see a "Short filenames (8.3) disabled" on the splash screen if you have short filenames disabled.

Thanks for your help!

Re: File Length = 0

I was able to fix this in v0.671.  It was a result of disabling short filenames under NTFS (when there are a lot of similarly named files in the directory).
