    BOOL GetShortFileNameSupport();
    void SetShortFileNameSupport(BOOL Value);

[C++ (VCL)]

Use this property to tell the driver that your file system supports short (8.3) file names. Short file name support is required for some third-party software, which fails to work properly if short names are not supported.

When ShortFileNameSupport is true, you need to provide short file name in OnEnumerateDirectory callback / event, and other callbacks might be called with short file name as parameter (where applicable).
