Long File Name recovery

By pradeep_jha ·
Is there any utility to recover long file name fron 8.3 format. I used xcopy to transfer date onto some othe drive. Format the present drive, and when I restored the data all LFNs has gone. I am using windows nt 4.0 with FAT partition.

No there is not. If the original long name information has been corrupted/lost, the computer has no way of knowing what the original name was. Hence, no way of restoring it.
