A small trap for young players: the short name is defined by the
order of directory creation. So if the server dies and you recover
from backup, anything that relies on the short name is likely to fail
if the recovery doesn't create the directories in exactly the right
order. Isn't Microsoft *wonderful*?
I don't know this from personal experience, but I have heard it from
somebody whose experience and knowledge in these matters I trust.
Verify if it's a concern for you.
