Maximum Path Length - Windows 2000, XP, 2003
Posted on 2004-08-12
I have a large file system and am having difficulties with deeper folder levels hitting the maximum path length. I have seen article talking about the "\\?\" prefix to enable 32,000+ characters, rather than the standard ~255. I do not know if this can be applied.
I need to use Windows File System normally (i.e. Explorer - via GUI), but with long paths. Is there any setting (anything else?) that will allow for this?
Thanks if someone can advise...
