Can you please elaborate why do you need the "ShortPath" property and what exactly do you mean by this? Are you referring the abandoned 8.3 filename format with tilda?

Yes, I mean on the 8.3 filename format:

Some users reported that their media players supported only such filenames and I have it implemented in my add-ons.

Looks liek working, but please note that most new HDDs formatted in Win 10/11 21H2 (especially m.2) have NTFS 8.3 naming disabled.
