BarryB - If you don't mind a little patching, this trouble is easily overcome.
CrMData V1.01.
1 - Decide on a new delimiter to mark the end of the filename. This character should be an obscure one as far as filenames go. I chose ~($7E) as example. If it could be worked so that directories are excluded then / would be ideal.
2 - hex editor at offset $159 change $20 to $7E, save it back.
If you're not giving a second filename then nothing changes. The original is overwritten.
To use a second filename the syntax becomes what is pasted below straight out of CLI.
I'm totally unfamiliar with "DiskMaster" so its effects with this are unknown.

Code:
 
1.Ram Disk:> dir c#?
     Ram Disk:Clipboards (dir)
  CrMData                          
1.Ram Disk:> CrMData CrMData~C r M D a t a
CrMData V1.01 --- (c) 1993 Thomas Schwarz
Loading `CrMData' (2620 bytes)...
Crunching... 2620 -> 1890 (27% gain)
Saving `C r M D a t a' (1904 bytes)...
1.Ram Disk:> dir c#?                       
     Ram Disk:Clipboards (dir)
  C r M D a t a                    CrMData
1.Ram Disk:> CrMData C r M D a t a~CrM      Data
CrMData V1.01 --- (c) 1993 Thomas Schwarz
Loading `C r M D a t a' (1904 bytes)...
Decrunching (1890 -> 2620)...
Saving `CrM      Data' (2620 bytes)...
