I just learned that NTFS/Windows doesn't allow the ":" character in filenames, what the fuck? Then how do you tag time on files? what happens if you download pic related?

You can use periods or single quotes.

turns into underscore

That's wrong and looks like a date or a millisecond time

>>80348085
thank you
>>80348067
Using quotes sounds retarded, I want to develop for windows so I want to know about it.
God what a backwards system, even the slash in the directories is backwards
>>80348107
true, both are bad, I think I'll go with underscore

Plenty of professionals used quotes to write timecodes on tapes. A single stroke can be placed faster than a colon.

now try actually looking at it in your file explorer

This has been the case since 1985 and you learn about it today?

I don't think this is an NTFS problem. Windows carries some bullshit bugs since the days of CP/M (MS-DOS was based on this system and so is Windows).

Not for filenames in an operating system retard
>>
you can't create a folder named CON too
>>
>>80347988
Use any other format, literally. I've seen phones save photos with timestamps such as DDMMYYYY_HHMMSS so you get something like 23022021_191525.

Windows can't handle ?, " and * either. Very annoying when using multiple operating systems. I managed a fairly large catalog of music on linux with funky song names as filenames, some of which contained various illegal symbols. I could change the names only with a linux machine. Windows simply cannot do anything with files that have those characters in the filename.

Also the path character limit of 260 has been very painful occasionally.
