Subject: Re: FR-Max FileLength

Date: Fri, 21 May 2010 19:02:54 +0200

I've been lazy, so not much going on with FR. I'm choosing between releasing it as it is right now, or waiting and adding more features.

As far as I know there is no limit on the filename length, other than the one opposed by the file system. Exactly how long this is, I'm not sure. I think it is 256 chars. Not sure if the path is included in this.

I have never had FR cut off long filenames. I have however experienced filenames whose path+filename are longer than allowed (don't ask me how) and FR have not been able to read them, and Explorer can not rename them either. You can however move them in Explorer or rename their folder to a shorter name to fix it...
