Maximum Folder Depth
Posted on 2003-11-26
I've recently had a problem with a file on a server which couldn't be renamed, have properties viewed or opened with the file's native program. As soon as I saw where the file was I guessed it was to do with the file length, and resorted to shortening the parent folder's name length. The file worked again.
What is the maximum folder depth allowable on Windows 2000 (Server)? I've looked hard for this information on the internet but can't find it.
In this case the # of characters in the file and directory path was 168 - I thought 255 was allowed...
This surely isn't a hard question, so 75 points.
And what's with the suddenly advert crazy experts exchange! Owner sold out?
