Windows 7: Sky Drive Live Mesh - File Names Truncated

Sky Drive Live Mesh - File Names Truncated

Hi - am I alone with this issue. I have searched for this with no luck.

I enjoy using Skydrive / Live Mesh - as an English teacher I sometimes need to access my files when away from home and this is an excellent way to do this except...

the file names for my files are longer than the description space allowed. When I hover the mouse pointer over the file name the whole name is shown in a box, but I need to see the names without doing this in order to find a file quickly.

In Explorer it's easy to drag the column width a touch wider to allow the full file name to be visible - but not on the synced folders from Live Mesh in Skydrive.

It's so important to me to be able to do this - I will likely have to pay for cloud storage if I can't resolve it as I have 4gb of teaching files.

Has anyone noticed this or am I alone?
