XBOX Xfat Filename and Directory Naming Restrictions

Any thoughts about adding support for restricting directory names? The XBOX 1 has some naming limitations that are somewhat annoying to manually apply to a directory before sending a file to it.

Most XBOX FTP servers handle the filename limitations fine.

Is there a particular limitation you are interested in?

The main thing is the restrictions on the directory naming.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. The main things you hit are:

1. Restricting directory name length to 42 characters
2. Filtering out < > = ? : ; " * + , / \ | from directory names
3. Filtering out characters 128 - 255

This really shows up when you try to push an iTunes Library to the XBOX, since the directory lengths can be somewhat crazy.

OK. I'll see if more people ask for this.
