Very interesting presentation Marcel! I really enjoyed it.

Obviously, that couldn't work with existing on-disk native QDOS file systems, and it would still be a kludge and not a real solution to the problem.
With a bit of clever thinking, I think it's way easier (and less error-prone) to work within the existing limits. I tend to have really big file systems and have actually not encountered a situation yet where I couldn't find a work-around with a bit of re-naming and moving stuff around.
I did this https://qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2830&p=27710&hilit=driver#p27710 some time ago. But I did not go any further with it.
