    8.3 is the maximum on filename length in the FAT file system used in DOS and versions of Microsoft Windows prior to Windows 95. They can have no more than eight characters, followed by a ".", followed by a filename extension of at most three characters.

    Yes, they can have less.
    All things are possible, only believe.
