If you have files in your SMB networked folders that look like this:
TRZB4~J.mp4, there is a very easy fix to get the original file names.
smb.conf file (usually at
/etc/samba/smb.conf) and add the following line under
mangle case = no mangled names = no
Once this is done, enter the following command in your terminal:
sudo service samba2 restart
Names are mangled to make them compatible with older operating systems, but this absolutely shouldn’t be a problem that you will face at home.
